Collection points for winter coats

Over 3,428 warm winter coats were generously donated by people across Leeds over the last few weeks as part of the Zero Waste Leeds, winter coat appeal. 

We're delighted to let you know that those coats are now available to be picked up by families who need them for free at 20 collection points across Leeds. They're a mixture of adult and children's coats (with all some hats, gloves and scarves).  All the venues below began sharing coats on Monday 21st November - and they will continue to give them away for free until coats run out.

Beat the odds this World Cup

With the World Cup in Qatar now underway, research shows that gambling often increases during large tournaments. With current financial pressures on families, and the cost of Christmas hitting our pockets the council is working with NHS Northern Gambling Service and Leeds Community Gambling Service to help those affected by harmful gambling get the support they need. Anyone who thinks they are at risk from the harmful effects of gambling or knows someone who might be can get help 24/7.
