We’re also getting ready to run fortnightly meet-ups for 18-25 year olds in Tonbridge and Maidstone. All the details are in the table below.

At all our groups, you can meet new people who share some of the same feelings and experiences as you, socialise and just hang out in a safe and non-judgemental setting.
