What we’re currently working on

#GiveLeeds

In December we're launching an exciting new project - #GiveLeeds.

We'll be showcasing opportunities to support grassroots community groups and charities across Leeds - groups that have been there for us like never before during COVID19.

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram for lots of ideas on how to donate to local community groups and charities this Christmas.

Leeds Fashion Futures

We've launched Leeds Fashion Futures to help make it easier for people to recycle, reuse and repair clothing & textiles. We want to reduce the amount of clothing that ends of up in Leeds household bins - estimated at 4000 tonnes per year. See our map of all the textile banks, charity shops, repair shops, sewing classes and clothes exchanges in Leeds.

School uniform re-use

We want to make second-hand school uniform first choice in Leeds. Our Leeds School Uniform Exchange project is supporting people across the city to swap uniform at their school or in their local community.
