Our aim is to provide support for people within the London Borough of Sutton who suffer from mental distress. Connection is a key part in everything we do, it helps us to form relationships and bonds which means we can offer support to those who need it.
We work together with our members to provide activities and support that meets people's needs. We hold community meetings where we encourage everyone to be involved in the way the we run the service. We facilitate informative monthly "Signpost Sutton" sessions on various topics of interest which are also open to the wider community.
Belmont Connect is a place to socialise, find friendship and receive support in a friendly, relaxed and unstructured atmosphere. We have a team of trained and supportive staff and volunteers.
No formal referrals are required to become a member. For further information please get in touch.
