Are you interested in working with us supporting grass rooots community activities in Leeds?

LCCT has been running for 13 years in Leeds; it works as an umbrella charity for 15 different projects, as well as a network for a wider range of projects and individuals.The member projects benefit from central services such as accountancy, insurance, and policies, as well as some development support and learning opportunities, and members meet regularly to support each other and make decisions as a membership body. We also host a shared office and meeting space at Ebor Court. 


This is a new role/piece of work created to play a significant part in taking LCCT and its projects to the next stage of development and build a robust model for going forward. You will have a good understanding of small and medium voluntary/ community projects and will be able to see their potential for diversifying income streams creatively, as well as having the skills to enable them move forward on that journey (enabling rather than ‘fixing’).

You will also be able to help the whole organisation think strategically in terms of building on its strengths to sharpen what it can offer, helping LCCT as a whole to find opportunities for expansion and income generation, within its own ethos and aims.

How can you create an enabling community – where everyone has the opportunity to join in and bring their own experiences and gifts to the table?

Social deprivation, loneliness, a lack of awareness for disability, low-income households – these are all issues affecting people in communities throughout the UK. So how should we respond? Delivering community-focused services do play an essential role in our society – but sometimes taking a service based approach to need, can only go so far.

Community Shares - What are they, and how could they work for you?

This month's video is not strictly a reflective film, but one that we hope will spark ideas and thoughts of an innovative way to both raise capital for community ventures, but also to generate the involvement of the communities that you might be working with...
