Forum Central is a network of health and social care third sector organisations in Leeds.

Forum Central is the collective voice for Leeds third sector in health and care. Our vision is a better quality of life for people in Leeds. Our work is delivered in partnership by Leeds Older People’s Forum and Volition.

We are a member led network and connect the fantastic work happening in Leeds’ diverse third sector organisations with that of other organisations and strategic developments happening in health and social care. We promote and support partnership working across the city and provide information for and about the sector.
We do this across health and care with a focus on four specialist areas of: learning disabilities, mental health, older people and physical and sensory impairment.

All our activities are informed, driven and led by our members and our Boards of Trustees.

We bring a long history of strategic partnership working and work closely with our health and care partners including Leeds City Council, NHS Leeds CCG, the three NHS trusts, public health colleagues as well as our third sector infrastructure partners.
