At SLATE our volunteers are at the heart of our organisation.

We are very proud to have passed Leeds’ Volunteering Kitemark (July 2015). We passed with no recommendations from the steering group and the assessors were particularity impressed with the quality of the information we provided. Thank you to all the staff and volunteers who have helped us to make and retain the standards that secured us this recognition kitemark.
