LCAN is made up of organisations or partnerships who aim to help ensure the communities of Leeds thrive.

Who we are and what we do

Throughout the pandemic, a group of locally trusted organisations have provided emergency support to local people in Leeds, covering a range of activities including food parcels and welfare calls. Through this work, these organisations have built partnerships with other local organisations to provide a wider package of support to local citizens. These organisations were called Community Care Hubs and aim to work in a citizen-led way, involving local people in the design and delivery of services.

Following a pilot project, some of these organisations have formed a movement which aims to continue and build on the citizen-led activities and partnerships from before and during the pandemic. This movement is called the Leeds Community Anchor Network or LCAN (“el can”).
