Your spotlight on local services

Recovery Café


The two cafes have been commissioned by South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust and one will be run by CDARS and the other by Hestia. Contact details are below.

CDARS Sunshine Recovery Café
296a Kingston Road
Wimbledon Chase
SW20 8LX


Hestia Recovery Café
966 Garratt Lane
SW17 0EN


The cafés both have capacity for 25 customers at any one time.

Their aim is to support people to reduce their immediate crisis and anxiety, and to safety plan, drawing on strengths, resilience and coping mechanisms to reduce the need to use crisis services in future. They are an alternative for people who may present at A&E because of their mental health and are an out of hours service to support people when other  services are closed.

Opening hours are 6pm – 11pm Monday to Friday and 12 noon – 11pm on Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays.  Both cafés will be open 365 days per year.
