Our aim

Based in Kings Heath and Moseley, Birmingham Kinmos is a charity committed to the social inclusion of those with a history of mental health issues. Our Aim is to support our members in the community, enabling them to self-manage their lives throughout their illness and recovery.

Many of our members can feel cut off from society, which leads to increased depression and anxiety. We offer a hand of friendship, social connection and support. Kinmos is a stepping stone for members enabling them to become a valued member in their local community.

Since 1979 Kinmos has provided advice and support to vulnerable and socially isolated people living in Birmingham who have mental health issues. We take pride in the work we do in our local community. Over the years, we’ve has helped many people remain independent and lead a fulfilling life.

We’re constantly looking for volunteers, so if you think you can help us on a regular basis or just as a one off, consider visiting our Volunteering page to learn more.

Kinmos works with people with lived experience of mental health to be the best person they can be
