Mid Kent Mind’s Youth Wellbeing Café

As a part of our National Lottery funded Reaching Communities programme, Mid Kent Mind have been offering a weekly Wellbeing Café to young people between the ages of nine and eighteen – providing opportunities to benefit from peer to peer support.
 
As we enter the next phase of the Reaching Communities programme, we will be adapting this programme to better support the young people we are working with. From the 6th of April, the Wellbeing Café will now be split to provide two different age-groups with support. We hope that by splitting the programme, we will enable young people to better-access support which is relevant for their age groups.
 
This means that the Tuesday evening sessions will now be split into one session, from 4pm – 5pm, for young people between the ages of 9 and 13, and an additional session, from 5:30pm – 6:30pm, for young people between the ages of 14 and 18.

Christmas Covid-19 Bubble Rules

Now is a good time to plan ahead if you’re considering forming a Christmas bubble with friends and family from 23 to 27 December.
The Government has changed some of social contact restrictions for a short period of time over Christmas, allowing us to meet with up to three households indoors or out.

However, we are being advised to reduce any unnecessary contact with people we do not live in the two weeks before we form our Christmas bubbles.

When following these new rules, we must each continue to take personal responsibility to limit the spread of the virus and protect our loved ones, particularly if they’re vulnerable.
View the Christmas bubble rules in full.

Sudden breavement service

Hospitals and police forces are now able to refer people bereaved in sudden or shocking ways (including by COVID-19 and any sudden illness, incident, or suicide), from day one of bereavement, into a new, government-funded, England-wide, professional, free and specialist sudden bereavement service (set up as a pandemic response and for the long term).

The service, Sudden, is run by a well-established charity that is experienced in helping suddenly bereaved people through trained and named case workers, operating over the phone. Sudden provides free support and advocacy for up to 10 weeks, with a focus on safeguarding and wellbeing outcomes. The service is delivered in partnership with relevant community-based statutory and NGO agencies. (Please read the attachment for more information.) To note, the Sudden helpline number (0800 121 6510) is available to call now, but is due to change within the coming weeks – please visit www.sudden.org or email help@sudden.org for the latest.

Because it is an immediate intervention service, the Sudden service is designed to be reached through very early referrals from hospitals and police.

Please contact see the attached information for more details about this new service.
