About LCVS Enterprises

We are an independent, not-for-profit company set up in 1981 with finance from the Department of the Environment and Leeds City Council to provide small low cost office and manufacturing units. Our aim is to help small business to start up and survive in the middle of Leeds. Since we started, many businesses have survived and thrived. Some have expanded and moved on.

The company

LCVS Enterprises Ltd is a Limited Company (registered in England & Wales no. 1514579) run by a board of trustees who give their time and services for free.

Our buildings at Aire Street and Dock Street in Leeds city centre are supervised by a manager who responds to the board and is available to give advice to help licensees.

Both workshops are managed in a similar fashion to provide accommodation for small enterprises which meet criteria from the following list:

  • New business
  • Redundant people making a fresh start
  • People on schemes such as the Prince of Wales Trust
  • Small Co-operatives
  • Manufacturing or office based services
  • People presently working from home
