For generations of families, organisations like the Hunslet Club have been a vital lifeline.

The club was formed to keep young people off the streets during one of the biggest crises in history - the Second World War.

And now, nearly eight decades later, as the city emerges from another major crisis the club’s support is more vital than ever.

Lockdown has had a huge impact on young people who have been isolated from their friends.

But the work of the Hunslet Club means that those who are at risk of needing additional support can form those positive relationships that can be life-changing.

And we’re so thankful to have organisations like the Hunslet Club in our city for supporting our young people when they need help the most.
