Thanet Thinkers

This group is on hold at the moment. Contact GOLD if you’d like more information. 

Thanet Thinkers is a support group run by GOLD that meets every Tuesday, from 1 to 3pm, at Costa Coffee in Cliftonville. The group provides the opportunity for people with a learning difficulty to:

  • meet new people,
  • find out what's happening in their local area,
  • talk about the things that are important to them, and
  • get information and advice about any concerns they may have.

For more information, contact us via email, or phone 0845-004-1876.

GOLD supported Alice to attend a tribunal after she was deemed fit for work by the Department for Work and Pensions, despite her physical and learning disabilities.

GOLD makes a difference

Since its launch at the end of last year, our GOLD project has supported a number of people in Thanet, who either do not receive statutory funding or are moving out of the welfare system.
The GOLD team are seeking volunteers to support people to take part in community activities, and recently teamed up with Thanet Volunteer Bureau to encourage volunteering in the area.
A National Lottery funded project, offering free, easy to understand information to people with a learning disability in Thanet, was recently launched by East Kent Mencap.
