Aire Place Studios in Burley is hosting its first Solidarity Cafe this weekend, writes Keely Bannister.
Taking place on Saturday 1st February from 1pm until 4pm, the cafe is a peer-to-peer/volunteer space where people can spend time win a friendly/supportive environment.
They can also get help with things such as applying for a job or benefits, updating CVs, or advice on where to access specific services.
A laptop will be available for anyone wishing to log onto their Universal Credit account or to look for jobs.
Affordable tea and coffee will be available as will crafting supplies for adults and children making the space welcoming to all.
Volunteers present at the cafe have a wealth of experience and knowledge, but are not experts.
For this reason, people needing specific help are requested to email solidaritycafeleeds@Gmail.com in confidence so that the team can do their best to make sure volunteers with the best skill set are present to help.
Located on Kirkstall Road, the Studios have limited on-site parking to the front of the building and the building is easily accessible via a range of bus services.
Ramps are available for disabled attendees to access the studios. The studios operate a safe space policy and has gender neutral toilets available on the ground floor.
