solve the housing crisis
we empower people who are homeless to transform empty houses in Leeds into homes and become part of a community
Canopy believes in people
We believe in giving people a chance because it’s what everyone deserves – that means we’re a place where people can try something new, make mistakes and then learn from the experience.
Canopy creates homes
We believe that letting tenants choose what colour paint goes on the walls and what carpet goes on the floor is the difference between providing houses and building homes where people feel they belong.
Canopy builds community
We believe in improving neighbourhoods while helping each other. That’s why working with Canopy means joining a supportive community of people that shares humour, strength and skills.
What we’ve been up to.
Tools of the trade! Many hands make light work. None of our success here at Canopy Housing could have been achieved without the dedications and hard work by our tenants, future tenants and volunteers. A MASSIVE thank you to everyone who has helped and supported us over the years. Plenty more to be done!
With 117 families in Britain becoming homeless every day, we at Canopy Housing are trying to make a difference.
