Make Do and Mend

About Make Do and Mend

Make, Do and Mend was founded in 2010 in Cambridge by a small group of people with personal and familial experience of mental ill-health. We wanted to break down the social isolation and stigma that many people experience when they are unwell and we wanted people to be able to take an active part in their community in order to increase their self-esteem, confidence and well-being.

We are an organisation run by and for its members and our aim is to provide a safe space for people who experience mental health distress to meet, socialise and learn new skills. We do this through providing a range of free strengths-based workshops and events which are inspired by our members and run by volunteers. We adapt and add new workshops as our numbers grow or the needs of our community change.

We produce a monthly calendar available on our homepage which details what is happening and when. This includes workshops at Castle Street Methodist Church, The Whitehill Allotments and other local events.
