Supporting Our Community

Inkwell Arts Cafe provides a safe, non-judgemental and supportive space for people with lived experience of mental health issues. As part of Leeds Mind our aim is to give individuals the opportunity to gain work and life skills, increase self-confidence and self-esteem. Currently, the cafe provides over 20 volunteering opportunities that give volunteers crucial hands-on catering work experience and training. All our cafe volunteers are trained to excellent industry standards enabling them to produce quality food and the finest beverages in Leeds.

The cafe financially supports the wider work we do for communities across Leeds. Monies raised feedback into our charitable objectives. Leeds Mind supports people experiencing mental health issues to lead full, active and rewarding lives using art and creativity as a tool to aid recovery. We provide a full programme of accessible art classes, social events and support many other volunteering roles at the centre.
