About Leys Community Development Initiative
Leys CDI was founded in 1995 to develop and co-ordinate projects of long-term benefit to the Blackbird Leys and Greater Leys estates in Oxford. The charity is well established, and its success lies in its community roots.
Leys CDI currently runs two projects:
Youth Project: Youth-led social and educational activities designed to support, encourage, and inspire young people. These include Young Women's Group, music, film, art and dance workshops, After School Group, Homework Club, and holiday projects.
The focus is to:
• support young people
• to develop their skills and talents
• to boost their confidence
• to develop friendships
• to improve their mental health
The Clockhouse Project: Supporting local over-50s to make good things happen in their community to
• tackle loneliness
• boost health and well-being
• help older residents develop their potential and live life to the full!
