At Belmont Connect, our aim is to provide support for people within in the borough, who suffer from mental distess. 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. At Belmont Connect we work together with our members to provide activities and sessions that really meet people's wants and needs. We encourage members to be involved in the way the service is run and hold community meetings. We also facilitate monthly informative "Signpost Sutton" sessions which are open to the wider community, these on various topics of interest.
Belmont Connect (formerly known as Sutton Drop-in or Belmont drop-in) is for people who experience mental health issues, who live independently in the London Borough of Sutton.
It is a place to socialise, find friendship and support in a friendly, relaxed and unstructured atmosphere. No formal referrals are required to become a member of Belmont Connect.
There is a trained and supportive staff team, including volunteers. We have art and craft activities plus occasional trips and walks.
There are activities every afternoon. These include arts & crafts, creative, drama workshop, music and Mindfulness. There are also games available at Belmont Connect such as: bingo, pool, table tennis, scrabble, chess and draughts. Daily newspapers are also available for all members.
