Children & Young People

We believe that every child deserves the best start in life and a chance to fulfill their potential. In order to make Leeds the vibrant, successful city that we all want, we must put the needs of children and young people at the heart of what we do. That is why, in 2010-11, we invested a total of £1.5 million (35% of our grants) in amazing projects supporting children and young people to build a better future.
