Blacks Solicitors Helps Leeds Mental Health Charity Secure Lease on New Headquarters

Blacks Solicitors

Leeds based, Blacks Solicitors, has recently advised mental health charity, Battle Scars, on signing a new lease for a headquarters in Leeds.

The new 7,500 st foot office will enable the charity to acquire its first ever premises and also create opportunities for other non-profit organisations and charities in Leeds to thrive. Battle Scars is a dedicated survivor-led charity, offering local, regional, national and international support around self-harm.

Through the newly secured lease in Millshaw Park Way, Battle Scars has gained a pre-approved Licence to Occupy, empowering the charity to extend the range of the support it can offer to similar organisations and services, providing a dynamic environment for collaboration and collective action.

Driven by its commitment to community wellbeing, Battle Scars sought a headquarters to serve as a hub for mental health support. The vision has since extended beyond its own organisation and aims to create a welcoming space for other mental health charities regionally to utilise.

Blacks Solicitors’ Real Estate team assisted the Battle Scars team on the acquisition of the new lease. Headed-up by Nick Dyson, supported by Jennifer Gillespie, Senior Associate, and Samuel Morgan-Wynee, Paralegal, the team’s expertise in agreeing leases ensured a successful execution of the deal, highlighting the firm’s commitment to facilitating impactful community initiatives.
