Grants and Awards

Grants & Awards Scheme

We have a grant and award schemes which enables community groups and organisations in Leeds to keep improving the city. In the past we have been proud to fund projects as diverse as; a respite garden at The Works Skatepark, (which will help teenagers experiencing mental ill health) to funding Meanwood Urban Farms footbridge which was washed away during the Boxing Day floods. We are currently funding projects with Bramley Baths/ Yorkshire Life Aquatics, gathering oral histories, and with Compass Arts Festival on a project exploring the city’s pub heritage.

Projects that we fund are community driven and should have a lasting legacy.

The next award round will be in September, with applications to be received by 31 August.
