Make, Do and Mend

Back to Activities

Make, Do and Mend run a range of free, creative socials online and in person in Cambridge. They are aimed at people living with mental distress. Topics include gardening, arts and crafts, creative writing and French conversation.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • it’s a great way of meeting people, socialising and forming connections;
  • attending activities – even online – can give structure to your week;
  • you can tap into your creativity and learn new skills.

What to expect

Make, Do and Mend run weekly social events in Cambridge that are open to anyone experiencing mental health constraints. You don’t need a referral to attend and there is a mixture of online and in-person events if you can’t make it into Cambridge. Visit the Make Do and Mend Facebook page to see the latest events calendar. Recent online activities via Zoom have included creative writing, a tea time chat and fun with French.

All the socials are drop in and free. There is no need to book. To find out more about the socials email [email protected]

More information

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. They wanted to break down the social isolation and stigma that people can experience when they are unwell. They offer opportunities for people to take an active part in their community in order to increase their self-esteem, confidence and well-being.

All of the activities are free to attend.
