Often less popular and receiving less charitable support than other areas of need in the City. Community groups operating in this area are working right at the frontline to address harmful lifestyle issues, including homelessness, drug and alcohol abuse, domestic violence, sexual exploitation and the rehabilitation of ex-offenders. In the last year alone we gave out just under £350,000 worth of grants to 27 groups, in particular funding posts for councellors and outreach workers.
Some of the groups we’ve funded are below:
- Women’s Counselling and Therapy Service
- Behind Closed Doors
- Leeds Women’s Aid – The Anneli Project
- Genesis – New Futures
- Yorkshire MESMAC – Blast Project
- Black Health Initiative
