Belmont Connect

Belmont Connect is a place to socialise, find friendship and receive support in a friendly, relaxed and unstructured atmosphere.

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 "Signpost Sutton" sessions on various topics of interest which are also open to the wider community.

The Belmont Connect is currently open for activities and support on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sundays 'till April 14th.  For information on our current drop-in times and details of our activities, please see our timetable on the Events page.

We have a team of trained and supportive staff and volunteers.

We currently offer a range of support appointments at Belmont Connect, further information and timings can be found on our Appointments page.

Referral form


While we are called a Crisis Café, we don't really offer food - although a cup of tea can be very helpful. And don't expect lots of activities - if you want yoga, art or mindfulness, we offer those in our daytime service at the Belmont Connect.
We are aware some people are having issues with the referral forms, if you are having problems, please email us at or give us a call on 020 8770 0172.
