Welcome to the 12th edition of our electronic monthly news bulletin!
Happy Summer Everyone!

We hope you have an amazing and well deserved break this summer with lots of sun and family time.

If you are still looking for activities, events and trips you may want to visit our website to view our publicity and calendar of events. Many of the activities are now fully booked but we do have some availability left. Some activities being offered by our partner agencies may also still be available so you just need to give them a call direct to find out more.

You may also want to Like our Facebook page too to keep up with our most recent news and updates. It is the quickest way to be notified if we release any additional places for trips and activities if someone makes a cancellation. To Like us on Facebook please click on the link below:

Just a reminder that our booking procedures have changed for all activities, events, groups and trips. All bookings are now taken via our TNLP Trust website. These changes will help to streamline and improve how members of our Trust can view, access and engage with services being offered within the local community. These developments will also have a positive environmental impact since we are moving towards all of our activities, events, training and groups being advertised and booked electronically via our website rather than returned completed consent forms and letters or having to email someone. This will also save on the time it takes to confirm your booking as it will be instant. You will no longer have to wait several days or weeks for a text message to find out if your event booking has been accepted and approved.

These changes are effective immediately and by clicking through on the top right of the website as displayed below you can:

1) Register as an Active Member of the Trust
2) Book activities, events and trips
3) Pay for your activities, events and trips online or alternatively request for help with payment

You will need to register your details (and those of your children if you are a local parent or carer) first before you can then start booking activities, events, groups and trips.

Once you have done this you can view our calendar of events to start browsing what you would like to access. Our calendar of events can be found on the home page of our website on the far right. You will need to scroll down to view this as an option. It looks like this:

The actual calendar of events looks like this:

When you click through to view the details of an event it looks like this:

All you need to do then is click on the basket icon to add it to your shopping basket and then checkout to complete and finalise your booking(s). You will need to add events to your basket and checkout even if there is no cost to the event like the example displayed above.

Please note that children and young people are unable to register their own details on our website. Parents and carers will need to do this on their behalf. This is to ensure that we have parental consent which is requested electronically at the time of registration on behalf of your family and when booking events for children and young people. You can not finalise and checkout any event bookings for children and young people on our website without first giving your parental consent for them to take part in such events.

TNLP Trust Partners!

The TNLP Trust is always looking to develop links with local community groups, community organisations, community representatives, community volunteers and local businesses. Community groups can also sign up as a member of the Trust.

We link on a regular basis with Leeds City Council Officers and Local Councillors via Community Committee Meetings.

Outer East Community Committee campaigns for local people in the wards of Cross Gates and Whinmoor, Garforth and Swillington, Kippax and Methley and Temple Newsam.
What are community committees?
There are 10 community committees across the city each providing a forum for local people to have their say about what happens in their community.

Community committees are an important part of the council’s decision making process and each committee has elected members as voting members.
The community committee holds at least 4 public meetings a year, where local people can meet with each other and with councillors, to discuss key issues of concern, and help influence decisions on matters of local interest.

Attending the meetings allows local people and councillors’ time to get to know groups and organisations that work in the area.

How do community committees work?

Local councillors elected to represent the area sit on the community committee, involve local people in discussions about the issues, and take decisions on key areas such as environmental improvements, community safety, health and wellbeing and employment.

The community committees also allocate money for local projects and activities.

How can you get involved? 

  • Attend a meeting
  • Contact your local councillor
  • Ask a question or take part in a discussion either at a meeting or through our social media pages. 

Meetings are held at different locations across the city, generally starting in the early evening and lasting a couple of hours. All meetings are open to the public and are usually themed around a particular topic.

How can I apply for funding?

Each community committee has a budget for both community projects and youth activities.  Each year funds are allocated to projects that will benefit the local area and address local priorities.  Small grants up to £500 and large grants over £500 are available for community groups, charities or other public services to apply for. Funding can also be granted for the delivery of youth activities for children and young people aged 8 to17 years across the city.

To find out more about your local Community Committee visit their Facebook page via the link below:

The next Community Committee Meeting is due to take place on Thursday 28th July, 6.00pm at St Mary's Church Hall Whitkirk. All welcome!

If you are a local community organisation or business and would like to find out more about linking with our Trust please feel free to contact Gemma on 07891 272113 or
