Welcome In Community Centre

Welcome In Community Centre Leeds is a vibrant and inclusive hub nestled in North Leeds (LS16). A warm and inviting space, it serves as a gathering place for people of all ages and backgrounds. Renovated from a run-down pub it has been transformed to a fabulous facility with a community café, mini orchard, therapeutic gardening space and has a bright and cozy interior.

Welcome In is the home of OPAL (Older People’s Action in the Locality) who are based in and manage the space. The centre is equipped with meeting rooms, 2 large rooms and office space and is a dynamic space that hosts a variety of activities and programmes. We offer great space for venue hire whether it’s for a small meeting, children’s party or an exercise class.
