Children and young people in south Leeds will benefit from a range of new and exciting initiatives including cooking classes, dance classes, bike maintenance and training for young junior reporters as part of £100,000 that has been invested by the area committee.
Submissions were invited from the area committee as to what would best benefit the area, and over £300,000 of submissions were made. Out of these submissions, 13 projects have been approved, all of which will be put in place by 1st April.
– Councillor Angela Gabriel, chair of the inner south area committee,
“We’re really excited about the range of activities for young people that we’ve agreed to fund for 2013/14.
“ Many of the projects will be delivered by organisations that we haven’t funded before or from organisations that have proposed new and innovative opportunities for young people in the area”.
