What we do in the Art & Design workshops

The art and design workshop meets every Thursday afternoon at SMART. Tools and materials are provided, just bring yourself! This is a chance to practice artistic skills, socialize, relax and have fun.

Bridge Building

Members can gain support in finding out about mainstream community activities including courses and voluntary opportunities. Whether it is a hobby or a way of getting back to work, the Bridge Building team will help Members achieve their aims. This service is available outside of SMART by request.

Café & Catering

Everyone’s welcome to join us at the café on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, from 10.30am – 4.00pm. We serve hot drinks, cold drinks, and snacks, including the cheapest (and tastiest!) teas and coffees in Chelsea. During this time, we run Crafts Café – an opportunity to sit down and decorate greeting cards, gift boxes, and key rings, amongst other things, to either take home with you, or give to SMART to sell at our events – in exchange for a drink and some cake. As well as this, the café also hosts many of our open drop-in sessions and workshops, including music and occupational therapy. As well as this, SMART also provides catering for events.

To find out more about all of this, call 020 7376 4668, or email us: info@smartlondon.org.uk

What We do in the Gardening project

The gardening project offers voluntary and paid work opportunities to those who want to get involved in growing and composting.


The Music project has been running since 2005. It began as collaboration between SMART and Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy and was a weekly musical gathering in the SMART café.

Now it is a dynamic and ever-evolving project with a variety of participatory music groups and events, including bands, singers, workshops and courses and a drop-in session.

The SMART music café drop in session runs on Wednesdays from 2.00 -3.30pm. This project is open to all. Just come down and enjoy tea, cake, good company, and great music. All abilities and musical tastes welcome!
