Help with energy bills, debt, and welfare advice

Leeds City Council provides and supports a lot of local advice. Find it in this helpful guide.

Free school uniform exchanges

We've supported the creation of regular free school uniform exchanges across LS6 and LS16. You can get school uniform for your children, free of charge. Find your nearest here.

Library of Things

If you want to borrow useful items like drills, sewing machines, carpet cleaners and more then you can save money by using the 'Library of Things' to borrow them. Based in Headingley, take a look at their inventory here.

Help from your local MP

Our Member of Parliament is Alex Sobel. He can help with issues to do with immigration, benefits, or anything else managed by the national government.

Advice and help we can provide

We can help you on anything related to Leeds City Council.

If you're looking for help with finding council housing please note that we can ask for your banding to be re-assessed and help you find the right people to speak to about your case, but we can't influence where you are on the waiting list.

Here are some common examples of the sort of work we've done with local residents:

  • Getting local play park equipment fixed

  • Setting up a residents association for a neighbourhood

  • Funding a new litter bin

  • Getting missed bins collected

  • Cutting back dangerous trees

  • Installing new road safety signs

You can contact us by email or by coming along to one of our monthly surgeries, see the details below.

We also run regular street surgeries where we speak to everybody on a street.
