This website was developed by Touchstone as part of the Migrant Access Project Plus (MAP+) and was commissioned by Leeds City Council.

The website aims to provide information to people moving to Leeds, about services, support and amenities available in the city.

It is designed to help you find the right services for your needs and understand how to use those services.

You can translate this website into different languages using the icon at the bottom right of each page. If you need this website in a different language, you can translate each page by copying and pasting the URL into Google Translate. We have used Google Translate because it means we can offer some translation in a wide range of community languages. We know that Google Translate is not always 100% accurate but we hope that it is still helpful. However if you find something that translates incorrectly or offensively, please get in touch with us using the Leave Feedback option.

This website does not provide immigration advice. For immigration advice, you need to speak to a trained adviser who is registered with OISC (Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner). For more information on getting immigration advice, click here.
