Cardigan Centre

The Cardigan Centre is a locally based, multi-purpose community organisation in North West Leeds with over twenty years’ experience of community work and service delivery.
Established in 1989 by local people, the centre has developed a range of services and tools which are used to meet the needs of the ever-changing diverse communities we serve. 
As a multi-purpose organisation the Cardigan Centre works with individuals in ways which reflect the complexity and connectedness of their lives.  This leads to improved outcomes for individuals and a more effective engagement with regeneration initiatives in NW Leeds.  Combining several strands of work leads to economies of scale, and therefore maximises the use of resources –people, money and buildings.

The Cardigan Centre is governed as a registered charity and company limited by guarantee.

November 2014 - Maseussa


We would like to introduce our newest tenant at the Cardigan Centre...

I'm Kristen, a fully trained massage therapist, qualified in Swedish, Indian Head, Hot Stone and Reflexology Massage Therapies. My mission is to share the fantastic healing benefits, both physical and mental, that massage and complementary therapies can bring - at an affordable price.

I aim to give a tailor made treatment that is an individual as we all are, its not just about relaxation but taking time to make YOU feel good! I have been practicing massage for 8 years now originally starting with training in Swedish Body Massage and then 4 years ago making the move to Leeds to continue my training and expand my knowledge.

In March 2012 Masseusa was born, I wanted to share with others the positive effects physically and mentally that massage brought to me to others and it has continued to grow and develop. My passion for massage hasn’t faded and look forward to continuing my training in other massage mediums.

My training in clinical aromatherapy has inspired me to make various oil blends for people depending on their needs (as well as myself) and have loved seeing the positive effects this has had.

If you have something you would like a tailor made blend made for then please let me know, various seasonal blends are available as well as tailor made ones for you to buy.

November 2014 marks a very exciting time for Masseusa. Now with a treatment room at The Cardigan Centre, Cardigan Road I will be able to offer treatments from 8am til 7pm Monday to Friday as well as treatments on Saturdays on request.

Keep your eyes peeled for special offers and drop in days. You can now make bookings through my website here. If you have any questions please feel free to call on...

Please don't hesitate to get in touch with any queries and please feel free to pop by and say hi.

I look forward to meeting you!

May 2014 - Matrix Accreditation


The Cardigan Centre was visited by Philip Styan on the 4th March 2014. Philip arrived on Tuesday morning to assess the information, advice, guidance and support (IAG) service provided by the centre against the Matrix standard.

Philip conducted formal and informal interviews with staff, learners, volunteers and partner organisations throughout the two day assessment. Following the review against the Matrix standards the Cardigan Centre had demonstrated that it had continued to meet the criteria and therefore accreditation was granted for a further three years.

Philip reported that “the staff demonstrated their commitment to providing impartial and relevant IAG and support to service users either as a core service or as an embedded service in teaching and learning

…the staff are enthusiastic about the service they delivered and their commitment to achieving the best outcomes possible for their clients”, and went on to highlight that “the organisation had always recognised the value of ‘soft outcomes’ for service users particularly those facing multiple barriers and are vulnerable within the ‘system’” as a strength.

We are very proud to have been successful in achieving Matrix accreditation, and this is in no small part due to all the hard work and dedication of our team.
