A Leeds project to help families access the support and services they need has been recognised as being the best in the UK.

The Positive Families project, run by the council’s Housing Leeds, Together Women Project and Total Families, was named Parent Champion project of the year by the Family and Childcare Trust.

Coun Lucinda Yeadon, executive member for children and families, said: “This is an excellent demonstration of how Leeds is working to become a child friendly city.

“Parents or children shouldn’t miss out on opportunities because they didn’t know where to turn.”
