A self advocacy group for adults with a learning disability in Leeds

At Leeds People First we support our members to speak up for themselves and their community offering a wide range of activities that improve skills, build confidence and wellbeing.

We are passionate about campaigning for the rights of people with disabilities. Our vision is to create a better life for people with learning disabilities so they are treated fairly, feel valued and can have the lives they choose.
#AbilitiesNotDisabilities #SelfAdvocacy

Our centre on Roundhay Road is also home to our award winning Cafe Leep which is a friendly community cafe and training centre for our trainees who are studying NVQ in Food Safety and Catering.

LEEP1 helps people with a learning disability speak up for themselves. This is called self-advocacy.
We run a centre in Leeds 7 which has all sorts of projects you can join in with.

We enjoy doing things together and help people do things for themselves.
