A LITTLE BACKGROUND
KASBAH was founded by a group of parents of children with Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus in 1966 with a desire to help other families in circumstances similar to their own. All of the support services are now open to any person with a physical and/or learning disabilities, including support for the parents, carers and families.
Come in... we're open!
The Meeting Place Café is now open for business!
The café is located in Gravesend High Street, in the attractive Heritage Quarter. Whether you want a cake to treat yourself, or a relaxing cup of coffee or pot of tea, the Meeting Place has it all. It's relaxing atmosphere suits all needs and is wheelchair accessible.
We would like to say thank you to Muriel Parsons, the previous owner, and Gillian Smith at Places for People, for their support in the cafe handover, and a huge well done and thank you to all the KASBAH staff who have been involved in decorating and setting up the café ready for opening.
The service users from our housing projects have now had their training induction and are working at the café with support from our own staff. The café pro- vides an engaging and meaningful workplace experience for our service users, which we hope will stand them in good stead to find employment as well as learn practical skills.
