Learn about a fund for community groups in Leeds to help offer advocacy.

As part of the Leeds Advocacy Network’s work in building advocacy across Leeds, there is a fund for community groups. Offering small grants of between £500 and £10,000 from a £25,000 pot, the Advocacy Development Fund is for any community group in Leeds who wants to build advocacy and take it to those who can’t access it.

This funding will support your organisation to deliver advocacy. This will add to your service delivery, volunteering or training, and you can share this with the people you support.

Advocacy is speaking up for yourself and others. Its understanding your rights, your choices and getting your voice heard. The Advocacy Development Fund will help community groups in Leeds to deliver advocacy.
