Folkestone and District Mind was registered as a charity in May 1988. Our charity is affiliated to National Mind but is run independently and has its own constitution and board of Trustees. We aim to improve the quality of life of Shepway residents experiencing mental distress. Our organisation has strong values and everyone working for us is familiar with our vision and objectives. Our services are provided by 15 part-time staff plus many volunteers. Testimony to the commitment of staff and quality of services is our attainment of National Mind’s Quality Mark.
Folkestone & District Mind is here to promote better mental health and wellbeing across Shepway and surrounding areas. To achieve this, we will help and support people to build resilience and make the best choices to improve and sustain their wellbeing. We are guided by the principle however that a person’s care is ultimately their own responsibility.
