HEART is trying to find ways to generate some income while being closed due to Covid-19. Every penny helps us during this difficult time.

New stretch target

If we can beat our original target we can start to invest in some new equipment that reduces our carbon footprint and increases our overall sustainability. One area would be upgrading our kitchen refrigeration.

What is HEART?

HEART – Headingley Enterprise and Arts Centre – is a community venture set up by the Headingley Development Trust in 2011. It occupies the former Primary School in the heart of Headingley.

What is our vision?

HEART’s vision is to create a vibrant and welcoming space for a wide range of people to meet, mix, work and play.

Who are we and what do we do?

We are a social enterprise, not for profit, community organisation.

In more normal times HEART offers all of the following to our community:

  • Rooms for hire, which are available for a range of uses including private functions
  • A lively events programme
  • A shared workspace known as Pulse, great for business start ups
  • Exhibition spaces for local artists
  • And supporting all these, Assembly Bar + Kitchen, which offers great food and a fantastic range of drinks in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere

In the current situation we are trying to keep our community involved by providing social media content and hosting online events such as yoga, music and quizzes.

Why do we need your help?

We are a social enterprise, not for profit and we get no external funding. Whilst we remain closed we are looking for ways of generating income so we can continue to pay our bills, retain our staff, and ensure we have our building properly equipped and maintained, ready to serve our community as soon as the current crisis allows.
