Established in 2002, People Matters is a charitable incorporated organisation. We have a commitment to improving the lives of people who experience disadvantage, especially through learning and other disabilities. Operating as a social enterprise enables us to generate a surplus through the sale of goods and services, which is then entirely used to ensure continuity of the activities that are valuable to the people we support. As a not for profit and charity any surplus is then used to further our work in the Leeds area.
We strive to break down barriers and social misconceptions and work alongside people with learning and other disabilities to achieve their full potential.
We offer a range of services to adults and young people (from high school age +) including: 1-1 support, employment projects, health and wellbeing groups, teens and adult social groups, Nourishing people (our social enterprise within the organsation) and a volunteering project
