Current Projects

We have three projects that urgently need funding

Suicide Prevention

Suicide Prevention

To further our essential work with suicide prevention we would like to extend our safeTALK service to provide additional listeners, additional hours of operation, and additional locations.

A donation to Folkestone & District Mind’s Suicide Prevention Project would enable us to further this service and to provide support available to help those with suicidal thoughts or ideation.

If you are feeling suicidal or are supporting someone who is, telephone Mind on 01303 250090 and book a time to come in.

Wellbeing Cafe – Refurbishment

Wellbeing Cafe – Refurbishment

Our Wellbeing Café within our Folkestone & District Mind headquarters is frequently used and provides a safe and enjoyable community helping to decrease isolation and enable us all to make new friends.

The space is always in need of further development, repair, and upgrade; and a donation to our refurbishment project would help us to keep this service running and improve the offering.
Furnishing Community Space

Furnishing Community Space

Folkestone & District Mind provides a wide range of community activities and would like to furnish a dedicated space to provide activities such as Yoga, arts & crafts workshops, Music lessons

and much more.

A donation to our community space fund will enable us to offer all our community activities at a much-reduced rate by removing the need for us to spend much needed funds on renting halls and community spaces elsewhere.
