Volition: the third sector mental health network for Leeds

Volition is a network of third sector, not-for-profit organisations that support people’s mental health and wellbeing in Leeds.

Volition works to make sure that the mental health third sector is involved in strategic planning and development of services; we encourage partnership between agencies and across sectors; and we provide information to third sector organisations to support them in delivering high quality services.

Volition has over ninety members from all areas of the mental health voluntary sector providing services to people in Leeds.
