Putting council community centres in Leeds into community hands
Leeds, Yorkshire & the Humber
Key objectives & Outcomes
To employ a resource to negotiate with the council on community asset transfer and to implement the group’s business plan, set up a legal structure for the organisation, set up routines/procedures and investigate systems.
Working in collaboration
Four organisations with a shared vision for community asset transfer and community-run services came together to invest in their local areas.
Delivering better community services
The overriding impulse for the Leeds Community Spaces initiative is to see more efficient and community-focused services delivered from community buildings.
