LeedsACTS!  has launched a new round of seedcorn funding to encourage new collaborations between third sector organisations and academic partners. 

Closing Date: 17 April 2020

A small (£2,500) pot of funding is available to support 4-6 proposals that build collaborative links. The aim is to provide greater opportunity for voluntary and community organizations to come together with people from universities to explore opportunities for collaboration and to work up ideas for joint action. 

Applications must be linked to the LeedsACTS! key themes:
  • Housing
  • Health & Wellbeing
  • Leeds £ / Circular Economy
  • Sustainable Food
  • Climate Change / Environment
  • Education, Skills & Access
A core principle of our approach is co-production ensuring work develops jointly with mutual respect and learning.
