Trust Leeds is a charity which works – and walks – alongside people helping them to change their lives by building financial independence, confidence and self-reliance.

We do this in two ways:

1. Micro-Finance  We invest small, ethical loans for business purposes.

2. Self-Reliant Groups (or SRGs)  We nurture local groups where people support each other, save together, build confidence and skills and grow enterprising ideas.


Our funding is donated so that we can work exclusively with enterprising people who are under-served, caught in a poverty trap, and/or facing challenges and disadvantages.
