About Take Off

Our Mission

Our Mission

Our mission is to support people with mental health problems to improve their well-being and live happier and healthier lives. We have grown to serve the community of East Kent, including Canterbury, Ashford, Faversham, Dover, Thanet and Folkestone.

Most of our services take the form of self-help groups, which are either “talking” or “doing” focused.


3 Principles of Take Off

  • 100% Service User Led

  • Everyone who wants to be paid is paid

  • Designed, developed and delivered by service users, for service users

Take Off provides ready-made social networks and also provide other peer support services as needed. When a need is identified, we will endeavour to design, develop and deliver a service to fill that void. We have a large group of sessional workers spread across East Kent. We believe peer support is a significant part of our recovery process and therefore has an economic value.
