Pony Partnerships CIC and Elements Tea and Coffee House will be working together to set up and run a mental health Cafe in Derby City Centre. We are raising money for set up and running costs for the Cafe: https://www.gofundme.com/f/fund-running-costs-for-mental-health-cafe-in-derby?fbclid=IwAR2fWBFxBGuaeUUlJWXxlCoy2PuXY7u0yRyaODiRAm25VlBUCyWwLaliS9E We need to pay for the venue, and staffing for the cafe as the event will run outside of normal opening hours. We also need to cover volunteer recruitment including DBS checks, safeguarding training and travel expenses. We also need to fund administration time and printing costs to advertise the service. We will also have equipment costs for any activities that we may run as part of the the provision. Our mental health cafe will run on the first Tuesday of the month starting September 2019. The aim is for people to drink tea or coffee, eat cake, and discuss mental health. The hope is to help reduce mental health stigma and to help people make the most of their lives.
