Medway Neurological Network (MNN) joined the Peninsula Opportunites Group and the wHoo Cares Project in initiatives to reduce isolation, initially on the Hoo Peninsula. MNN is also working in partnership with Medway Adult Education to provide neuro-cafes in Medway, starting with Jasper's. To this end MNN has helped launch or promote 8 Neuro-cafes to provide your regular dose of coffee and companionship.
NEW 'Place of Welcome' NEURO-CAFE has started at ST. AUGUSTINES'S CHURCH, 192, Rock Road, Gillingham, Kent ME7 5PW on the 4th Wednesday of each month, as soon as the Coronavirus pandemic allows!!
