Welcome to The Cellar Trust

We are a registered mental health charity (No. 701982) that supports people with mental health problems, across the Bradford district to move forward in their recovery and live independent, fulfilling lives. 

We exist because mental health problems exist and because they are complex. We all have mental health and our state of health can change at any time. Mental health problems affect everyone in a different way and they can be devastating. Our purpose is to support people when they face these challenges, and to empower them to move forward. 

West Yorks & Harrogate Health & Care Partnership

We were recently invited to take part in a short film about our partnership with Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust’s First Response service. Haven is a non-clinical, supportive environment designed to help people in crisis stay safe, work through and understand their feelings, and then support them to access the support they need going forward.

Putting Bradford and District on the map

We’ve been featured in a short film produced by Working Academy and Bradford Film Office about Public Health across Bradford, and the range of events and activities taking place across the region. Check out two of our fantastic team members, Andrew (from Fundraising) and Rick (from Employment), from 6 minutes onward. 

Peer support

I often get asked “What is Peer support?” There are of course lots of different types of peer support, like AA and postnatal support groups in the community and generally, peer support is about building a relationship based on mutuality, reciprocity and shared experience.

Become a Friend

Becoming a Friend of The Cellar Trust is a really simple way of making a difference. By making a regular donation you’ll be helping make sure that we can be there for people facing serious mental health challenges, giving them the chance of a better life.

I was very worried before I came but from the moment I arrived, I was at ease. Here you have found room for me. I haven’t had that before. to be treated like a human being for a change… it isn’t something I was used to.
