Grenfell response

In response to the tragedy, Hestia has expanded its mental health services in the borough to support members of the community who have been affected.

HESTIA’S K&C RECOVERY CAFE

The cafe offers a safe, welcoming space for people who are struggling to cope with their mental well-being and/or trauma during the evening and weekends when other services may be closed. There is no need for an appointment, just turn up and you’ll be met by a listening ear, food, peer activities and therapeutic group and 121 support.

From Monday 1 October 2018:

  • Hestia will run two new community-based support groups at St. Mary Abbot’s Church and the Chelsea Theatre.
  • There will no longer be evening support at the Hilton Kensington and Copthorne Tara Hotels.

If you need help and support: Hestia Counsellors, your key worker, and members of the Council’s Community Contact Team will work closely with the small number of you still accessing the hotel overnight service to develop an individual support plan.

This will include linking you in with alternative services so that you get the flexible, tailored support that you need and might mean receiving a visit in the evening or a referral to a specialist clinical service. If you would like to get in touch with Hestia’s Counsellors to discuss your support needs, they can be contacted on 07788 237089.

The Council’s Community Contact Team can be also contacted via phone, text or WhatsApp on 07834 337499.

If you need urgent help, you can contact the NHS or The Samaritans:

  • NHS mental health services can be contacted at any time of day or night; the 24/7 phone number is: 0800 0234 650.
  • This service provides urgent support over the phone and can help you access mental health services in the borough, and will give priority to anyone affected by Grenfell.

Wandsworth Mental Health Rehabilitation and Recovery Service

Hestia is very pleased to be delivering the Wandsworth Mental Health Rehabilitation and Recovery Service for 60 adults who have housing support, social care and health care needs.

The service began in May 2018 to support people in ten houses across the Borough, four of which are high support with 24/7 staffing and six are lower support with visiting support.

Hestia is providing housing related-support and delivering health and social care support, with a specific focus on rehabilitation and recovery, promoting independence for all of the people who live in this service.

Hestia are co-producing the delivery of the service with the people who live in the service in a way that fundamentally links with the principles of the recovery approach as a basis for supporting them to achieve long term wellbeing.

For more information about this service, please contact Vicky Okusaga; Service Manager on [email protected]

Please note that this is a not an open access service and referrals are managed in conjunction with the local Social Services Team.
