Zest is an independent not-for-profit organisation and registered charity which offers support and opportunity to people living in disadvantaged areas of Leeds. We aim to address health inequalities and social isolation through activities which improve physical, mental, social, emotional and economic wellbeing. The organisation has its roots in East Leeds, but now works citywide.
Part of a large, national charity Willow is a support service for young carers aged 5 - 18 years old living in Leeds. They support children and young people who care for a family member affected by a physical or mental illness, disability or substance missuse problem.
Young people can contact them directly and speak to a young carers worker who can explain the support that might be useful for them, before agreeing whether or not they want to meet up. Each carer has a different need and some need more support than others. Some young people attend events and activities just to meet other young people in similar situations ot themselves. Others need more intensive support.
People in Action benefit people with learning disabilities, difficulties and similar conditions. The charity makes a real difference to the lives of the most vulnerable and socially isolated; inspiring and empowering people to recognise their potential, fulfil their aspirations and lead safer healthier, better connected lives. The charity provides a range of innovative, inclusive, person centred services which reflect the needs of the people it supports. The activities are wide ranging and include the provision of opportunities for leisure, learning, employment, health, wellbeing and the development of life skills. The range of activities runs from practical courses in employability to social groups that meet in the community to enjoy leisure time together. Through individual care packages the charity also provides practical one to one support tailored to the needs to the individual
