DIAL LEEDS is able to offer a limited number of free services.
These services are directly funded via project grants. This means that the free services we can offer are limited in scope and often have restriction based on the type of funding as well as being time limited.
Due to budget pressures on Leeds City Council and Leeds CCGs, DIAL LEEDS lost 100% of its funding in March 2017. This meant that we were unable to provide our previous free Disability Information and Advice Service (DIAS) and all the existing paid staff where made redundant.
At this time DIAL LEEDS is offering the following free services;
Peer Support – West Leeds Foodbank Project which runs until 31st March 2019 (Bramley) and 30th September 2019 (Lower Wortley).
Peer Support North Leeds Foodbank Project which runs until 31st October 2019 (Moortown).
Happiness Cafe which runs until 31st December 2019.
We are also running a Winter Wellbeing/Friends Project of home visits, telephone consultations and office visits running until 31st March 2019.
Depending on ongoing grant funding applications what, how and when we can deliver free services will change. Please come back and check to see what we are offering. Most (but not all) projects start either in January or more likely April and we will try to give as much notice of them as possible.
