Big Change Leeds Fund


Currently in Leeds, the number of people presenting as homeless, rough sleeping or in need is on the rise in the city centre. This is a complex issue which no one organisation or individual can resolve in isolation.

Big change Leeds is a positive alternative giving campaign designed to question behaviours and raise awareness of alternative ways to help to people in need on the street of Leeds city centre, by donating on online.  

The main aims of the campaign are to:

  • Utilise the strong economy and compassion of Leeds as a city
  • Educate the public to change behaviours
  • Generate new support and money to allow existing organisations to provide additionality within their services
  • Raise money for those in genuine need
  • Remove on street presentation of individuals
  • Focus on delivering outcomes for the individuals in direct need
  • Utilises best practice with potential to develop a national network

Through Big Change Leeds we want to ensure all organisations and individuals, including members of the public are working together, towards the same agenda of tackling the issues we face on the streets of Leeds.

Ensuring everyone has access to the same level of information regarding available services and ways in which they can directly help, will help the city start to make a lasting change.

These grants will support the work of the city wide initiative Big Change Leeds which raises awareness, money and support to people in need on the streets, of Leeds, through an online portal called Street Support.
