The LS14 Trust is working to revitalise the huge Seacroft estate and the surrounding locality, creating new opportunities for residents and increasing the sense of pride in the area.
They run The Digital Lounge, a free open IT resource for local residents & groups working in the LS14 postcode which provides internet access, CV help, advice and signposting, and a meeting space. They also work with other local groups to establish, run and support local events such as festivals and street parties aimed at building a welcoming and vibrant community.
As an organisation, LS14 Trust wants to help the local community to recognise its power to bring about and sustain positive social change. They foster conversations with residents about their vision for the area and engage with agencies and community bodies that are working there to move that vision forwards.
The strength of LS14 Trust is its rootedness in the local community and its desire to bring that community together to create change, both on an individual level and on a communal one. It’s energising to meet people who have such an inspiring vision and we are really looking forward to seeing what develops as they move forward.
