Blackfriars Settlement


Blackfriars Settlement is a registered charity providing services to the community. We work with people, creating opportunities for them to achieve their aspirations. We meet individual needs within our multi-purpose framework.

Having difficulties with your mental health should not necessarily limit your chances in life. Blackfriars Settlement creates opportunities for those who are experiencing, or have experienced, problems with their mental health.

They promote well-being through person-centred personal development. Whether you are looking for a training and development pathway or prefer a less structured environment including peer support, there will be something there to help you develop skills and confidence. Thriving art sessions come as standard!

Services include:


At Blackfriars Settlement they provide excellent courses and workshops in a friendly and supportive environment. All the courses are for people aged 19 and over.  You can download the course prospectus on the website.
