Organised by
Anna-Marie at Bee Friends

Date and time

Every Friday

12.45pm to 2.15pm

We need help with

Encouraging non disabled people to come along

Setting up games and equipment

Helping tidy up at the end of the session

Chatting with people at the cafe

Playing board games

Volunteering helps with work experience and builds up confidence.

The groups are held in cafes around Leeds.

We encourage people to chat together. We also help people with counting skills and general communication.

It helps to have a common task and that usually means simple board games.

We sometimes have themed days like Chinese new year, storytelling, and music days.

What we provide

We'll give you guidance if you have not worked with people with learning disabilities before.

You get food and drink at reduced rates.

Any suggestions gratefully received.

Providing a safe space to chill and chat is what we're about.

DUE TO RECENT EMERGENCY REPAIRS ON THIS VENUE, PLEASE CONTACT THE ORGANISER BEFORE YOUR VISIT.

“We've helped people overcome social anxiety and begin to make friends. They feel safe and welcome.”
