Background
Volition was first established in 1987 as the ‘Leeds Voluntary Sector Mental Health Forum’. In 2004 the charity changed its name to ‘Volition-Leeds’. In 2017 Volition merged with the PSI-Network – which was the key Leeds Third Sector infrastructure group working in the field of physical and sensory impairment. In 2020 it merged with Tenfold, the Learning Disability Forum. In April 2020 the newly merged organisation was named Volition.
