Our Impact

Creating a city of opportunity for all

We have distributed over £42 million in grants to date across Leeds and Bradford, enabling positive change in the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in our communities.

We distribute grants, share advice and use our specialist knowledge to help community projects thrive, so they can make an even greater impact and create opportunities for people to be Healthy and Well, Work and Learn, Thrive and Be Safe, and Experience and Play.

Investing in our communities
