The Arts Cafè

The Arts Cafe is delivered by Next Generation, in partnership with the South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

Arts Cafe sessions take place in Wakefield and Pontefract with all sorts of creative activities to support mental well being.  Try something new, reconnect with an old hobby or just take time out and relax with a cuppa – it’s up to you.

We aim to provide a relaxed social setting for service users, family and friends to enjoy a host of creative activities in a safe, supportive environment. We have a team of volunteers on hand to share their creative skills and talents and they are joined by special guests – artists who run workshops for us and groups from the local community with a project to share.

At the Arts Cafe we think that being creative makes us feel better – and we know that more and more people are starting to think that too!   The use of creative activities in health care has been shown to increase self-esteem, provide a sense of purpose, develop social skills, build strong community links and improve quality of life.

So, why not join us and get creative!
