There are lots of ways that you can raise funds for AVSED. Community support is essential and important to help us keep working and helping the most vulnerable within Aireborough.


AVSED is part of the Leeds Neighbourhood Network Scheme –
one of 37 organisations covering Leeds which support older people to live
independently and be part of their community. We are part funded by Leeds City Council to provide this service.

Other funding comes from a range of streams – charitable grants make up a large part of our income and help
support our staff team. We have received grants in the past from various funders including The National Lottery, Leeds Community Foundation and Frank Parkinson’s Trust. We generate some income to support the groups and services by charging a nominal fee for groups and
transport and the rest of our income is from general
