Leeds Flood Relief Appeal – grants for flood victims 

by rykdownes on 21 January, 2016

Following the Boxing Day floods, Leeds Community Foundation (LCF), a catalyst for positive change, launched the Leeds Flood Relief Appeal in response to the devastation caused across the city. Thanks to the generosity of the public and businesses across the country, the appeal has now raised over £100,000 to support flood victims in Leeds.  

The raised funds will be distributed in financial grants to relieve hardship for people in Leeds that has been caused directly or indirectly by the recent storms and flooding. The scheme will close for the first round of applications on Friday 29 January and will support individuals, families, social enterprises, community and voluntary projects. Individual grants of up to £250 and community grants of up to £2,000 will be available – although applicants will be asked to give further details of their losses so that larger grants may be considered, if funds permit. 

Full information about the scheme and available application forms can be found on our website –
