Mind in the Vale of Glamorgan


Mind in the Vale of Glamorgan is a charity that works with and for people with mental health problems.  We believe that mental health problems are very common and can affect any person at any stage of his/her life.  We also believe that many of the ideas that people have about mental illness are based on fear and prejudice and we are committed to challenging these misunderstandings.

Vocational Services & Activities


Travellers in Mind is a supported work experience project based in Barry Railway Station Café. It aims to help people who have had mental health problems re-adjust to a working environment, gain confidence and self esteem, and utilise their existing skills as well as developing new ones.  As well as delivering a service to commuters, the café is also the base for Catering in Mind which delivers buffets across the Cardiff and Vale area.  The café also houses the Travellers Gallery creating art opportunities for people recovering from mental health problems.
You can also access Vocational support through our Mental Health Resource Centres (above)
