What is Happy Here?
A service to connect with inclusive, like-minded people - a place you can be heard with compassion, non-judgement and care.
The Happy Here team aims to provide wellbeing services within Kent with the help of our Happy Bus, a new and exciting creative outreach service.
We offer this through Social prescribing. a non-medical approach to providing mental wellbeing support. It utilises and encourages people to improve their wellbeing through identifying and recommending activities and resources based on an individual’s needs, interests, and capability; helping them find the opportunity then motivating them.
We are proud allies and PRIDE ourselves on being a safe space for ALL regardless of your sexuality, faith, age, gender, disability or race - HH

Arts & Crafts
Our Arts & Crafts are specially designed to complement the day to day activities of our members — providing an opportunity for them to learn a new skill or change their daily routine. All of our programs and activities are designed to provide entertainment, education and fun in a warm and inviting environment.
Indoor Gardens - coming soon!
We're teaming up with Enchanted Gardens in Whitstable to provide an environment that will promote health, healing, creativity and growth.
Donna and the rest of the lovely people at Enchanted Gardens will do regular classes and provide education on ecological matters and the importance of plants and mental wellbeing; all with a delicious cup or tea or coffee from our cafe. Our very own Herne Bay In Bloom will be helping us with the upkeep of our outside garden and we will both be providing spaces for people to access calm and inspiring spaces.
Cafe and Tea Bar - Coming soon!
Happy Here will be centred around a vibrant creative cafe and Happy Teas Therapy Bar where you can learn about different teas and the connection with mental health. We aim to make our tea and coffees subsidised for those who need it and will have a Pay It Forward scheme to help the people in our community who need a conversation but may not be able to afford a drink. We are here to make you feel at home. In the cafe there will be a quiet corner, art supplies and access to a laptop and internet.
A safe room will be provided to the public for anyone suffering with severe anxiety or just needing some quiet.
