Engage Leeds wins the Locality 2018 Partnership Award

The Engage Leeds partnership – between GIPSIL, Barca-Leeds, Connect Housing and Riverside Care & Support – won a national award at Locality’s national convention on November 7th.

Locality brings together community organisations from across the country, and their annual convention is always one of the highlights of the year. This is the first time awards have been made, and we’re very proud to be the first to receive the best partnership award.

Engage Leeds supports 1500 vulnerable people across the city. Engage Leeds went ‘live’ in April 2017, but there was a year of intensive collaboration before that to win the contract and mobilise the service. We’re delighted that this has been recognised.
