July – August e-Bulletin, latest from CEO Ant Hanlon

Welcome to our latest e-Bulletin informing you of what’s going on for LIHH. I hope you find it informative. It’s certainly been a tumultuous time for the country with the Brexit result and the speculation that surrounds it.


Thanks for everything that you and Leeds Irish Health and Homes have done for me – it’s been a genuinely life changing experience! Everyone has been so warm and kind, and I’ve always felt very valued. I’d recommend volunteering with you to anyone, and particularly people who have been jaded by their day jobs!

Anna Walsh
