African-Leeds wellbeing project

It is with great pleasure to announce that we have been funded by National Lottery Community Fund for our African-Leeds wellbeing project.

This project will propel us to continue with our vision to improve the mental health of BAME people in Leeds.

We will be providing information through webinars and in person event by partnering with local service providers. Our aim is to reduce depression, increase uptake of mental health services from minority community and increase black people's confidence and ability in using these services.
