Community Projects

At Zest we deliver a large number of different community groups aimed at improving wellbeing and reducing social isolation. We are looking for volunteers to help support staff to deliver these groups. Tasks would include helping organise activities, meeting and greeting participants, delivering sessions.


As a charity we are always looking for people willing to help out with our community fundraising; that can include anything from running a coffee morning to helping out at one of the events we run.

Zest Board

We are always looking for new members with relevant skills to join our board. Board members should possess a commitment to help reduce inequalities in Leeds as well as be experienced in one of more of the key areas of work we deliver.
