Last year’s event was the second ever Compassionate City Awards, and took place at the Leeds Civic Hall on Thursday 22 November 2018.

The awards recognised and celebrated the work of the city’s many unsung heroes and supports our vision for Leeds.

Our vision is for Leeds to be the best city in the UK; one that is compassionate and caring with a strong economy, which tackles poverty and reduces inequalities. We want Leeds to be a city that is fair and sustainable, ambitious, creative and fun for all with a council that its residents can be proud of - the best council in the country.
