Meeting the Talk It Out team at their new cafe

A café set up to help people with mental health issues is going from strength to strength after receiving a £10,000 grant.

The Wellbeing Café, based in the Landmark Centre in Deal, is run by the Talk It Out mental health support group.

The café recently received the grant from the mental health and policing fund set up by Kent Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Scott.

Talk It Out founder Tracy Carr, who I have worked with for some time, invited me to visit.

It was great to sit down for a chat with everyone at the Wellbeing Café, which is clearly so well loved by all those who attend.

The mental health and policing fund set up by the energetic Matthew Scott is a superb initiative. The £10,000 grant could not have gone to a more deserving cause.

Talk It Out makes such a huge difference to so many people and Tracy really is an inspiration to us all.

We must do all we can to support groups like this. That's why I'm fighting for a fairer share of healthcare and better mental healthcare in Dover in Deal.
