Our society has been running for over 50 years and is the longest running volunteering society at Leeds University, we run projects which work with children and elderly people from the Leeds area. Each group has a different aim with some projects focussed on providing relief for young carers, some as fun trips for children with learning difficulties and some providing employability help for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds."
