We know that every individual is important in their own right – and we treat them as such, with whole-hearted warmth, kindness and respect.
We value and celebrate the unique blend of Irish cultural identity in Leeds, evolving and adapting to ever-changing environments.
We believe that everyone should feel a sense of safety, belonging and connection within their community, and we're here to support this.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life for everyone we work with, so we strive
to see that people have the right support and opportunities to:
- Live independently
- Access suitable housing, including finding the right housing situation for them
- Continue their journey to recovery in mental health and thrive
- Look after their own wellbeing, including their physical and mental health
- Connect with others, take part in social activities and have strong networks of friendship, kinship and community
We also focus our work where we see particular needs or inequalities, so that:
- People of Irish origin can access services and activities that are culturally sensitive
- Older Irish people lead active and fulfilling lives and have the support they need
to remain healthy and happy
- Irish people with dementia and their carers have support and opportunities for culturally sensitive care, access to culture and connections to the community
Health and well-being services that change people’s lives
through care, culture and community.
