How can I access this service?

You don’t need a referral to join Mind the Gap. Please contact Pauline Hayden on 07788 438 134 or [email protected]

We know that joining a group can sometimes be difficult, so if you’d like to bring a friend or family member to support you during the first few visits, then you’re welcome to do so.

“I feel I have grown as a person over the time I’ve been going. I am more confident, able to join in and be an active member. I know I'm missed if I’m not there, the same as I miss the group. I can chat with others and help if I can. I may not be much of a talker, but I know I am a good listener and I have compassion for others. The group has definitely brought this side of me out.”


If you feel you require any support to access this service, for example hearing loop, translator or mobility aids, please call 01494 463364 or email [email protected] and we will get back to you to discuss your individual needs.
