We are OPEN with limited numbers. We have 14 groups who have either already restarted or are scheduled to come back in the next few weeks. Because of social distancing restrictions on group numbers, we are not currently advertising our groups on the calendar, but if you would like to find out if a group is running please email email@example.com or call 0113 457 0817.
As our groups return things are still a bit different at the centre, the capacity is still limited to 2m social distancing and masked are still mandatory inside the building. We are classed as a multi-purpose building and the rules for us are different to pubs, restaurants and cafes, however our wonderful group leaders have been working with us to come up with creative solutions to ensure that their group can come back together even though the number are reduced for the time being. We are keeping up to date with all the government guidance and hope that things will get more normal in the coming months, we will keep you updated!
Later in the summer, when restrictions allow, we hope to open a new social hub for the community on our ground floor called The Open Door. Our vision for The Open Door is for anybody to be able to come into the space and either join in with an activity, have a natter with our volunteers or enjoy some time to themselves with an affordable drink! We have already got a small pool of volunteers who are going to help run a pilot in the summer if all goes to plan!
We still don’t know for sure what Stage 4 of the government road map will bring but we will keep you updated with our plans as things move forward!
If you have any questions about specific groups restarting or anything else we are always happy to hear from you! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to get in touch.
Pudsey Wellbeing Charity is a social hub which provides activities for the community all run by volunteers.
The aims of the 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. Some of our current groups are an Arts Group, a Community Choir and a Walking Group. Anybody is welcome to attend these groups which are mostly free with a couple of groups asking for a small donation. 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.
