Crossways Community is a Christian charity caring for younger adults (18-65 years) with mental health difficulties based in the leafy suburban St John’s area of Tunbridge Wells. The care and support in each home is tailored to meet specific needs; residents in the care home (Number 8) have more acute mental health difficulties, those in the Culverdale, our supported accommodation, are more independent and in the six self-contained flats, people have occasional support. In addition we are continuing to develop a Mental Health Awareness programme for schools, businesses, churches & community groups and Crossways Enterprises which will look at a variety of activities to combat exclusion for people with mental health problems.
Street Pastors is an inter-denominational Church response to urban problems, engaging with people on the streets to care, listen and dialogue.
Life & Soul is a local charity in Tunbridge Wells working with children and young people age 5-25. We deliver assemblies, mentoring, resilience workshops, relationships education and Play Therapy in local primary and secondary schools and at a hostel for homeless youth. The aim, through all our work with young people, is to raise their self-esteem and help them accept and celebrate who they are, discover their voice, gain knowledge and be empowered to make wise life decisions.
