New cafes have been commissioned by South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust.  One will be run by CDARS and the other by Hestia, as below:
CDARS Sunshine Recovery Café

Monday to Friday:  6pm – 11pm

Both cafés will be open 365 days per year and have capacity for 25 customers at any one time.
They offer safe, inclusive and welcoming spaces for people who are struggling to cope with their mental health during the evening and weekends when other services may be closed.
Their aim is to support people to reduce their immediate crisis and anxiety, and to safety plan, drawing on strengths, resilience and coping mechanisms to reduce the need to use crisis services in future. They are an alternative for people who may present at A&E because of their mental health and are an out of hours service to support people when other  services are closed.
