What is the Serenity Cafe?KPCC logo

Our Serenity Cafe is an out of hours service for those at risk of developing a mental health crisis and is currently funded by the Kent Police and Crime Commissioner's 'Mental Health & Policing Fund'.

Our experienced staff and volunteers are on hand to help you improve your immediate wellbeing and we provide a safe and welcoming venue for you if you are in need of support and guidance to prevent escalation.

"The Serenity Café has given me a safe space to come to and this has helped me to develop my graphic design projects. I don’t have to worry that I wouldn’t be accepted – I feel safe there." Serenity Cafe Client, 2019

"The Serenity Café is a valuable local resource and it means so much to them (residents) in different ways. From being somewhere they can discuss problems in an a relaxed and friendly environment, to having somewhere they can make new friends and socialise, and even get involved with preparing food for everyone. It’s also something of a unique service, with people coming from far and wide because of everything it has to offer." (Greg Clark, MP).
