Following the success of our Anxiety Cafés on the Isle of Wight, Independent Arts has produced a toolkit to help anyone set up an Anxiety Café in their community. The toolkit offers tips and ideas on how to run a safe space for people living with Anxiety.

Kerry Weston, Co-Founder of Anxiety Café says:

“From the very beginning of Anxiety Café we had always hoped the idea would spread further than the Isle of Wight. We would love every community to have an Anxiety Café, providing a safe space for those who live with anxiety to make new friends in a place where they are understood.”

Independent Arts Operations Manager and Anxiety Café Co-Founder Hannah Griffiths says,

“It would be wonderful to see Anxiety Cafés popping up in every workplace, place of worship, community centre, school – the possibilities are endless.”

Newport Daytime Anxiety Café are celebrating a year of photography with their new exhibition “Through Anxious Eyes” which opens at PPUG (The People’s Pop Up Gallery, 33 High St, Newport) on 14th November 2019.

There is an accompanying fundraising calendar featuring the work of the group available for £4. Members of the group will also be volunteering in the gallery to talk about Anxiety Café and their photography work.

Anxiety Café is supported with funding from The People’s Health Trust, and the toolkit has also been funded by Comic Relief.
