MALAP

MALAP stands for the ‘Multi Agency Looked After Partnership’.  This network brings together partners, from across services and sectors, with a shared aim of improving outcomes for looked after children and young people in Leeds.

ArtForms facilitate the MALAP sub group, ‘Enjoy’.  This sub group was established to:

  • ensure looked after children and young people have access to leisure facilities
  • work to identify and remove barriers for looked after children and young people to access activities eg transport
  • develop activities and services to improve the self esteem of looked after children and young people
  • develop an offer/ menu of group activities that looked after children  and young people can access

The group has created a leaflet which gives a brief overview of the universal arts and sports offer for children and young people.  Each area of activity has a named contact. Please click on the link below to see the leaflet.

Multi Agency Looked After Partnership (sub group Enjoy)  and Leeds Beckett University worked together on a research project reporting on how children, who are looked after and living in Leeds, use their free time.
