Blackthorn Trust is a social-therapeutic environment
where people can recover through nurture, healing and growth.
We offer specialist therapies and a range of workshops at our unique facilities near Maidstone, which include a large biodynamic garden, a deli/café and kitchen, craft and woodwork studios and therapy rooms.
Our work is based on our experience that more than medication is required to affect positive change.
We provide holistic, life enhancing opportunities for people with mental health challenges, chronic pain and type 2 diabetes.
Blackthorn Trust is a registered charity and have been helping people for more than 30 years.
“In the free resolve
of your heart,
Take your own life in hand”
We are now open and offering a comprehensive menu of home cooked food to enjoy in our gardens.
STOP PRESS – Our charity shop is now open every weekday from 1000 until 1430 and we have lots of plants for sale too! Come and see us soon.
We look forward to welcoming you back!
We would like to request that visitors to our shops, cafe and gardens park in St Andrews Road for the moment as the surgery car park is reserved for the vaccination clinics. Please follow any instructions provided by the volunteer marshals. The back gate that is accessible via Queens Road is always open.
