St Luke's Cares has been working with young people and those furthest from the labour market in South Leeds for over twenty years.
From humble beginnings from St. Luke's Church in Holbeck in 1994, they have worked with countless children, young people and adults over the years in the mission to help everyone reach their potential.
They invest in young people, to provide safe places to be, resilience as they grow up, and opportunities to thrive. They aim to address local issues, responding to young people struggling in school, becoming caught up in anti-social behaviour and petty crime and even those at risk of exploitation.
For those out of work our employability programmes build and create confidence, self esteem, positive social networks and pathways to volunteering, education, employment and training. The varied social enterprises provide the perfect local and welcoming environment for those wanting to gain work experience.
The work is expanding in response to the growing needs in local communities in South Leeds. The network of social enterprises helps to fuel this work, whilst also creating employment and volunteering opportunities.
