Established in 2018 as Project Freedom, Pride of Place Leeds was launched in recognition of the need, identified through local and national consultation, of a lack of appropriate housing with integrated extra care and support for the older LGBTQ+ community. Our vision, aims and goals were formulated in response to this.
Why Pride of Place Leeds?
In 2016, Leeds Community Foundation and Leeds City Council commissioned a report to ‘map’ the needs of the LGBTQ+ community in the city. Two key recommendations from this report were:
- The need for an ‘inclusive LGBT+ community centre’
- To ‘develop a LGBT+ housing project that is multi-generational supporting the needs of older and younger LGBT+ people in Leeds’

Lets Get Building Together
Our vision is to enable the creation of a vibrant and sustainable LGBTQ+ community in Leeds where LGBTQ+ people can live, work and enjoy life independently through:
- a variety of affordable and accessible accommodation with the availability of extra-care for those who need it.
- a fully accessible and thriving Cultural Community Space
