/ The Faversham Umbrella Mental Health Charity
Registered Charity 1027436
The Faversham Umbrella was set up 22 years ago to provide a community support centre supplying facilities for recreation, education, refreshment, companionship, encouragement, friendship, and general care. We aim to boost our members self esteem and confidence so they can successfully integrate back into the community, rather than feel isolated by their illness.
We act as a lifeline to local people who have suffered varying degrees of mental health trauma whether it be short or long term, and we also serve as a place where members of the local community can come to enjoy friendship and activity. The ‘Puddles Café’ offers light refreshments at a very reasonable cost, and there is an opportunity to play table tennis, bingo, darts, Wii fit, and pool. There are a range of arts and crafts activities to join in with and basic IT help is on offer. The Centre also organises trips, quizzes, pool and darts competitions and other activities.
We are in the process of updating and redecorating the Centre, and reorganizing the activities and support we can offer. We always welcome new visitors and members, and urge people to come and see for themselves what the Centre is about. We also welcome any new ideas for improvements and offers of help.
The Centre is open Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday 10am - 3pm
