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 Well-Bean Café is a partnership between Leeds Survivor Led Crisis Service and Touchstone (who are leading on the project). The café is funded to the end of June 2019 currently and runs at two different venues across the week from 6pm to midnight:

Saturday, Sunday and Monday – the WBC is at Lincoln Green Community Centre, Cromwell Mount (LS9 7JB)

Tuesday and Wednesday’s the WBC is at Touchstone House, 2-4 Middleton Crescent, Beeston (LS11 6JU).

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.
