The Pudsey Wellbeing Charity is a social hub which provides activities for the community all run by volunteers.
The aims of our charity are:
- To support wellbeing, both mental and physical, by creating a social hub and network based at our centre in Pudsey.
- To provide a range of facilities for recreation activities or other leisure time occupation for the benefit of the inhabitants of Pudsey and the surrounding areas.
- To improve quality of life for the general public with particular focus on the socially isolated and others who may have specific needs on account of age, disability, social or economic circumstances.
We do this by offering space for local volunteers to run groups and activities for people in the community. We currently have 23 groups running at the centre, including our Pudsey Art Workshop which is run by local artist Geoff Lea, our PATS group (Pudsey Adults with Time to Spare), a Youth Club (ages 11-17), Invisible Pain Theatre Company and a Menopause Meet Up Group, to name a few! Our wide range of groups allows us to cater for many interests.
The charity is accessible to all. The charity building has an automatic entrance door, suitable for wheelchairs and power chairs and our Open Door cafe space is on the ground floor. The building also has a lift with access throughout, enabling those who are unable to take the stairs to join the groups which run in the Community Hall on the first floor. The toilets are accessible to those with a disability and we also have baby changing facilities.
Anybody is welcome to attend these groups, which are mostly free, with a couple of groups asking for a small donation. For further information on our groups and activities please have a look at our Whats On page, where you will find a full calendar of events. Alternatively, please pop in to the centre and take a look at our noticeboard on the ground floor, where you will find further information. If you are interested in running your own group here at the centre please do get in touch!
Our volunteer programme is a place where our local community can be inspired to get involved and engage with our community! It is an opportunity for people to be creative and enables our volunteers to share their skills or life experiences, as well as being part of a friendly and supportive group.
