New Leaf is an exciting and innovative new Partnership of 35 organisations from across Warrington, Cheshire East and Cheshire West applying for Big Lottery / ESF Building Better Opportunities funding.

New Leaf will transform lives, empower communities, raise aspirations & connect people to opportunities which deliver positive Futures. The 2016-2019 programme will support a minimum of 2,800 residents across the LEP area with multiple and complex barriers to move closer to employment, out of poverty and to contribute to the community and local economy.
