Who We Are

Leeds Charity Learning Partnerships helps people from the most deprived areas in Leeds where poverty is entrenched. Many have barriers which prevent them from participating equally in society.

We help adults, young people, families, single parents, children and members of the BAME community. From our latest client assessments; 70% of those we help are long-term unemployed, 32% have mental health problems, 82% have low skills and 60% speak little or no English when they come to us for support.

We also support local children and young people through our Let’s Read Programme helping to increase their literacy and language skills and through our 2 Way Street Project, involving them in making East Leeds a cleaner, greener space to live.

Projects by Leeds Charity Learning Partnerships

Working with people from the most deprived inner-city areas of Leeds, we offer a range of training courses, 1-to-1 support and personal development opportunities to help children, young people, adults, families and communities.

Healthy Holidays Volunteering Programme

With support from the Healthy Holidays Fund, Learning Partnerships is delighted to be running a summer playscheme to get kids active during the summer and tackle holiday hunger. 

We will be running a playscheme aimed at primary school aged children (with a family guardian) 3 days a week in East Leeds and would love volunteers to help engage children and help the event run smoothly.   

Help needed: providing drinks and snacks, supporting children and their families in arts, crafts and games, registering families and signposting to other services if needed.  Setting up and packing up!

It will be open to families from 10am-2pm throughout the holidays on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays (excluding Thursday 29th July and August Bank Holiday) but ideally volunteers could help between 9am-3pm.
