Established in 2002, People Matters (Leeds) CIC is a more-than-profit organisation with a commitment to improving the lives of people who experience disadvantage, especially if they have disabilities.   Being a social enterprise means if we generate a surplus through the sale of goods and services, we can use it entirely to make sure we continue to offer the activities that are valuable to the people we support. We do not have any shareholders any surplus is used to further our work in the Leeds area.

We strive to break down barriers and social misconceptions and work alongside people to achieve their full potential. We are committed to offering innovative and person centred support to ensure each individual’s needs are met. How we work and the difference we make is really important to us. We have a one page impact-report-2016 and a set of values which we think describes this really well
