Well-bean Cafe – hope in a crisis






The Well-Bean Café – Hope in a Crisis supports anyone in a crisis – it provides a safe place for people in crisis to go and to prevent avoidable attendances at A&E.

The Leeds Hope and Wellbeing Café is a partnership between Leeds Survivor Led Crisis Service and Touchstone (who will be leading the project), the café is funded to end of June 2019 currently and will run on Saturday, Sunday and Monday nights, 6pm-midnight.

The café is located near St James’s Hospital in Lincoln Green, with the aim of diverting people from avoidable visits to A&E. The project will also work closely with A&E staff, including the crisis team, to take direct referrals of people who have turned up at A&E but don’t require medical intervention.

What we offer:

We offer a non clinical alternative to A & E, to reduce distress and work with people to resolve or better manage crisis.

We offer one-to-one support and also a social space, where refreshments and hot food will be available.
