About Your Back Yard

We work with communities in Leeds, West Yorkshire (and beyond!) to help them create places to be proud of.

Friendly faces at our open day

Our Aims

  • Improving community facilities
  • Supporting healthy lifestyles
  • Increasing life chances

Why? Because we believe everyone deserves to live in an area thay can feel proud of, and that provides ample opportunities to live a happy and healthy life.

And anything else that will help us achieve our/your goals!

We are funded mainly through grants, with some contracted work. We have just enough funding to give anyone some taster sessions, or advice or a bit of support, for nowt (as they say in Yorkshire!)..so do get in touch.
