Welcome to The Cellar Trust

We are a charity that provides support to people recovering from mental health problems, in the Bradford, Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven areas. We understand that recovery is very personal; that’s why we provide people with tailored support to help them move forward and improve their mental health and wellbeing, in a way that complements any additional support they are receiving through other services.

We receive regular funding from three NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (Bradford City, Bradford Districts, and Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven) and Bradford Metropolitan District Council. We also rely on support from other grant giving bodies, corporate and individual donors as well as income generated by our conference centre, cafe, charity shop and woodwork shop.

Referral Procedure

We take referrals through GPs, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, community psychiatric nurses, and other secondary mental health workers. Unfortunately we are unable to take self-referrals but if you would like support obtaining a referral please contact us
