Who We Are
Our charity 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 Programme, involving them in making East Leeds a cleaner, greener space to live.
