Welcome to The Cellar Trust

The Cellar Trust has been working with the people of Bradford since the mid-1980s, promoting recovery from mental health problems. We believe that every person has the right to a bright future and we support individuals on their journey as they move towards the goal of an independent and fulfilling life.

As well as a range of educational courses and workshops that help people develop and enable them to fulfil their potential, we have an income generating charity shop, community café and woodwork shop. We also run a day time crisis centre from our headquarters.

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 cafe, charity shop and woodwork shop.

Referral Procedure

We take referrals for our  employment and personal development programmes through GPs, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, community psychiatric nurses, and other secondary mental health workers. For our Haven crisis centre you will be referred through First Response or A&E mental health only.

Unfortunately we are unable to take self-referrals but if you would like support obtaining a referral please contact us
