-       Get information that enables you to stay independent 

If you need support to access the Foresters Café, please bring your support with you.

Meet Scott

Congratulations to Scott Cheater on being appointed Trustee for the Executive Committee at East Kent Mencap. We spoke to him about his expectations and ambitions for his new role.

From strength to strength

For over a year, the GOLD Project has been running a weekly snooker club. It began with just a few people attending each week, but that soon changed as the club flourished with up to 14 people in a single week!
Members and staff alike were in a spin to find their head office in Margate had been transformed into a woollen wonderland on Thursday 8th March. Our Women’s Group carried out the ‘yarn bomb’ by decorating the building with colourful wool creations to raise awareness of International Women’s Day.
