About Us

The Stafford Centre is a community resource for people experiencing mental health difficulties living in the Edinburgh area. Our aim is to help people to manage their mental health, gain greater self-confidence and become more integrated within the community. 



The Centre operates as a Drop-In where people can enjoy the company of others in a relaxed, friendly and safe environment and begin to build supportive networks.  We have a Snack Bar serving home-made soup, lunches and a variety of snacks, tea, coffee etc., all at reasonable prices.  Some Centre users help by volunteering behind the counter.

Support in Mind Scotland

The Stafford Centre is managed by Support in Mind Scotland, and has in place policies and procedures which protect the rights and welfare of everyone using and working in the Centre.



The Stafford Centre staff team are always available to offer support and encouragement, information and advice (including benefits advice).
