LEEP1 stands for Leeds People First
We are an organisation that supports adults with learning disabilities to speak up for themselves. This is called self advocacy.
Our vision is to create a better life for people with learning disabilities so they are treated fairly, feel valued and can have the lives they choose.
Support people to have a voice and transform world attitudes towards people with learning disabilities.
AND clothes is a new business run and managed by a team of 8 adults with learning disabilities at Leep1. We design and sell clothes spreading our powerful message globally #AbilitiesNotDisabilities.
AND is a casual wear clothing brand with social purpose. AND stands for Abilities Not Disabilities. Our mission is to redefine disability and promote achievement and ability. We are passionate about tackling public misconception and reducing the stigma against people with disabilities and want to address the lack of employment opportunities for the learning disabled community.
We are currently looking for volunteers to help support our team members to work in a city centre arts and crafts shop (Fabrication). During the summer there will be opportunities to help out at craft fairs, events, photoshoots, fashion shows and exhibitions.
