About LCCT

LCCT is a charity made up of individual initiatives working together for the good of the city. As individual projects working on specific issues, in specific places, or with specific groups of people, we have joined together as one charity in order to share resources, recognising that we are part of a bigger picture of transformation in the city of Leeds.

 

Through this site you can find out more about our collective vision, mission and values, as well as links to the individual projects that are part of LCCT. You can also find out what LCCT can offer you and how you can get involved. Individual and project members of LCCT can also use the site to access information and resources.

 

We hope that you can find the information you are looking for. If you can’t please feel free to get in touch through the details on the contact page.
