Huddersfield and Dewsbury Well-bean Cafe
The ‘Well-Bean Cafe-Hope in a Crisis’ supports anyone in crisis. It provides a safe place for people in crisis to visit out-of-hours and prevent avoidable attendances at A&E.
The Well-bean cafe has been set up by Touchstone and the Basement Recovery Project, a Huddersfield social enterprise.
It is funded by NHS Greater Huddersfield Clinical Commissioning Group and NHS North Kirklees Clinical Commissioning Group.
We offer a 6 day service to anyone in crisis living in the Kirklees area. We have cafes in Huddersfield and Dewsbury town centre.
We provide one-to-one support, practical advice, hot drinks and homemade food.
We are open in:
o Huddersfield every Saturday, Sunday and Monday at 3A Union Bank Yard, New Street, next to Imperial Arcade
o Dewsbury every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday at Union House, 29 Union Street, Dewsbury, WF13 1AS
Anyone wishing to attend the cafes can self refer or ask a professional health or social care worker to refer them. The phone lines for referrals open from 6 pm at both cafes.
