Who are we?

We are currently a small committee of local, passionate and experienced LGBTQ+ individuals.

Pride of Place Leeds has a Constitution, adopted in early 2020, and is working towards an appropriate legal structure. This encompasses Pride of Place Leeds as the parent company with Pride of Place Living (community housing) and Pride of Place Space, a Cultural and Community Arts Centre established as separate organisations and legal entities.

Currently, we are seeking partnerships with local housing associations and Leeds City Council to help develop and secure funding for the scheme, as well as passionate LGBTQ+ individuals to get involved with Pride of Place Leeds.

Our Funders

Pride of Place Leeds received grant aid from the Leeds Community Foundation in 2018, and from Community Led Homes Start-Up Support Programme (Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government) in 2020.

Further funding for Pride of Place Living came after winning the 2021/22 William Sutton Prize for Social Innovation.
