What we do

Our core activity is providing psychotherapy to refugees and asylum seekers in Yorkshire and the Humber regions. In recent years, we have provided over 3,000 hours of therapy to more than 250 people year on year.

Our main office is in Leeds, but our services cover Sheffield, South Yorkshire, Bradford, Kirklees and Calderdale, as well as outreach support throughout Yorkshire and the Humber region for children and families.

We have two full-time and twenty part-time or sessional therapists, plus a small number of volunteer and placement therapists who carry out the work.

Working during Coronavirus restrictions

Following government restrictions during the Covid-19 pandemic, our team are working from home. Therapy is taking place by phone or video call and we are continuing to check in with people regularly who we know need a little extra support. 

We continue to make progress with our waiting list, particularly in Leeds and Bradford where we have experienced consistently high demand. 

The administration team continue to monitor the phones from home during office hours, and our info@solace-uk.org.uk email is managed as usual.
