The Works Skatepark works closely with schools, youth groups and extended services where our aim is to help get children back into exercise whilst having fun through learning or improving with different non-traditional sports. The skatepark often plays host to events, demos and film premiers starring the biggest names in BMX, skateboarding, inline skating and scooter riding.We will post the latest news and future events on Facebook and on this website.
The Works Skatepark Charity
We are now a fully-fledged charity. With Thanks to Leeds Community Foundation, Jimbo’s Fund (part of HESCO Bastion) and Social Enterprise Investment Fund (SEIF) The Works Skatepark Charity has purchased the shares of The Leeds Skatepark and is now able to operate as a social enterprise. Profits made by the business go back into developing the skatepark and the projects offered across Leeds benefiting children and young people.
The vision of the charity is to make the facilities accessible and affordable to all. We aim to provide a safe environment where children, young people, and adults can engage in non-traditional sport on a regular basis. With emphasis on reducing obesity levels in young people, building community cohesion and targeting disaffected young people through sport.
The Works Skatepark currently works with the NHS and schools delivering a range of activities to children and young people, including sessions run in school time, after school and in the holidays. Working with a variety of children and young people who are both in full-time education and those who are not. Sessions are run for young people who not active (re-introducing them into a sport that is non-traditional, fun and different), overweight (giving them confidence), NEET (giving them some focus and developing their skills) and much more.
We hope to build more partnerships across Leeds and beyond. If you are interested in working with us, contact
