We are a Leeds based community development charity whose purpose is to help people and communities flourish.
At Oblong, we are building a community where everyone belongs and matters.
"Oblong aims to develop the capacity and skills of people living in socially and economically disadvantaged areas in such a way that they are better able to identify, and help meet, their needs and to create active flourishing communities, and to run a community centre, primarily for the benefit of the Woodhouse , Little London and Hyde Park areas."
Thriving Together, a volunteer-led project where local people run their own groups and activities, supported by Community Development Workers;
Oblong has developed a unique and effective style of flat management which ensures everyone we work with has an equal partnership and voice in our development.
One of our biggest projects is the Woodhouse Community Centre which we have refurbished and now run in partnership with the local community.
Our Head Space courses offer valuable mental wellbeing sessions, funded by Live Well Leeds.
