The Freedom Fields Cafe’ – A New Look
Our Vision: A vibrant and friendly community café that is the hub of the community, the ‘go to’ destination café where everyone feels welcome. With café activities that supports wellbeing, helps people avoid isolation and helps volunteers gain experience, skills and confidence.
Plymouth & District Mind has had the café lease for over 13 years. The City Council has been very supportive and have agreed to a new lease so we can offer more to the Plymouth community.
So we are wanting a new look community café….We want everyone to ‘have their say’ on the new style, food and the activities we might be able to put on.
We need volunteers…Professional painters, electricians, plasterers and other helpers.

Support our new campaign – ‘I am the 3 in 4’
In the last 12 months, we had over 120 telephone calls and emails from people who knew a family member, friend or colleague that was struggling with their mental health.
We want to raise £1500 to fund a support worker for 6 months who will focus on working with families and friends. This will enable us to put a peer support network in place and train some ‘champions’ who can volunteer their time down the line to support this service.
We need your help to make this possible:
To spread the message, take a selfie or write why you are supporting us and post it out with the hashtag #3in4. Ask your friends to do the same.
