The Well-bean Hope In a Crisis Café 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 Crisis Café is a partnership between Leeds Survivor Led Crisis Service and Touchstone (who are leading on the project). The café runs at three 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 – the WBC is at Touchstone House, 2-4 Middleton Crescent, Beeston (LS11 6JU)
Thursday and Friday – the WBC is at Stocks Hill Community Hub, Chapel Lane, Armley, Leeds, LS12 2DJ as of the 1st December.
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.
