Helping Leeds and the surrounding areas into employment

How we can help

Making a Difference has been working in Leeds and the surrounding areas since March 2022.

We cover the following local authorities: Bradford, Calderdale, Craven, Harrogate, Kirklees, Leeds, Selby, Wakefield and York. If you’re over the age of 18, unemployed, and living in one of these areas – we can help you into work for free! 

Our qualified Employment Coaches will work with you 1-2-1 to provide tailored support to help you into work. This support could include helping you to develop your CV, practicing interviews, and exploring different opportunities

“The programme has been invaluable, and I would highly recommend it. The staff are approachable and supportive.”
