We’d like to share with you a quick update from our service.
Inkwell has not been open as a café since the first national lockdown in March. Due to the impact of COVID-19, we have been hosting the Inkwell activities online via the website with a mix of interactive and pre-recorded workshops and events.
In line with this development in our offering, we have revised our staffing team and have the following new roles: Community Arts Coordinator and Community Arts and Catering Worker. These roles allow us to continue to deliver fantastic wellbeing activities to a wider range of people. The other staff in the team remain in the same role or are working in other roles within Leeds Mind.
For now, the Inkwell building will remain closed. We will provide an update when we are able to, when we know more about future restrictions.
In the meantime, the virtual offer continues with a range of activities available through the Inkwell website and Facebook Page. The virtual course, Creative Age (for over 55’s aimed at reducing social isolation), is running and currently fully booked. The Live Well Leeds classes are also continuing online; please see livewellleeds.org.uk for more information. We were due to start some groups with New Wortley Community Centre, which are currently on hold; we hope to be able to update on this soon.
