CATCH stands for:
Community Action To Create Hope

We are a registered charity based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. We believe greatness exists in every child, and through the power of positive mentorship, we can change a child’s trajectory for a lifetime. Our goal is to help young people reach their full potential by ensuring they have access to the tools and resources they need to pursue greatness. It is our privilege to invest in opportunities to help them unlock that potential. Our passion for our mission grows with every young person who overcomes an obstacle, achieves success in school, discovers their voice, and unlocks their greatness.

At our colourful headquarters in Harehills, Leeds we have created a safe space for the whole community, but in particular for young people. We have a popular youth programme with over 1000 children accessing our activities. We provide a range of opportunities for sport, creativity and learning, as well as for volunteering and social action projects. We also act as a source of support, advice, and inspiration to raise aspirations of people of all ages and backgrounds.
