History & Aims
The Cardigan Centre was established in the late 1980s, with the public community building officially opened in September 1990. A partnership of the local Church (now All Hallows), South Headingly Community Association and Leeds City Council was instrumental in founding the organisation. St Margaret's Church supplied the land for the building and the Urban Programme from central government provided the finance.

The Cardigan Centre has received on-going financial support from Leeds City Council. Other funding is received from other statutory bodies, a variety of trusts, and the organisation has a significant income from the services it provides.
The Cardigan Centre has grown over time to the point where we now have two buildings and operate out of other community venues across Leeds. With an average annual turnover of around £800,000 we currently employ twenty eight permanent employees, half of whom work full time and the remainder part time, the equivalent of twenty full time staff and have over 50 volunteers who help us to achieve our aims and objectives.
