About Us

Boat Trip

Established in 2002, People Matters changed into a charitable incorporated organisation in 2017. We have a commitment to improving the lives of people who experience disadvantage, especially through learning and other disabilities.   Operating as a social enterprise enables us to generate a surplus through the sale of goods and services, which is then entirely used to ensure continuity of the activities that are valuable to the people we support. As a not for profit and charity any surplus is then used to further our work in the Leeds area.

We strive to break down barriers and social misconceptions and work alongside people with learning and other disabilities 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 People Matters Theory of Change and a set of values which we think describes this really well
