Hyde Park Source works with people from disadvantaged communities across Leeds. Our aim is to improve people’s health and wellbeing by improving the environment. We run weekly, supported sessions giving adults, young people and children the chance to learn about their local surroundings and feel a part of these spaces. We respond to requests from disadvantaged communities to transform neglected urban spaces and create attractive amenities for rest and recreation such as community gardens, seating and play areas, wildlife and outdoor learning areas, allotments, outdoor kitchens, and art installations. Each project is unique and is inspired, designed, implemented and maintained by local people.
Volunteers have worked on ideas and designs for improvements, this process will continue when we deliver the project as we will work with volunteers to carry out the work. This will help strengthen relationships in and across the community, as well as providing opportunities for people to develop skills and improve a place that really matters to the community.
