Geographical remit: 


PATH Yorkshire, a registered charity, was established in 1985 to enhance the life chances of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) people by tackling discrimination and developing their potential through quality vocational training, education and career opportunities in areas where there are disadvantages and under representation of BAME groups. 

We are well-established, financially stable and recognised Positive Action organisation in Leeds and the Yorkshire region for our expertise in working at grassroots levels with disadvantaged and hard to reach communities and schools. We have a wealth of expertise in delivering creative, interactive and effective training and workshops.

Our main objective is to promote inclusion and community cohesion by delivering inspirational empowering programmes for diverse groups of ethnic minority and disadvantaged individuals. We work very closely with a wide range of partners in the public, private and voluntary sectors to fulfil our mission. 


We provide training, work experience and career opportunities to tackle discrimination, inequalities and disadvantages experienced by minority ethnic and migrant communities. Our programmes and projects are to develop, empower and support marginalized and vulnerable migrants for social inclusion and community integration. Our programmes include training and workshops on personal development, confidence building and employability skills development.  Current courses include structured non-accredited English/ESOL course, Volunteer ESOL Teacher Training and PSHE/Tackling Bullying in Schools for Secondary and Primary School Teachers.

Other projects we are currently doing are:

  • Second Chance: aims at tackling poverty and economic disadvantages through skills improvement, one-to-one mentoring and work coaching, financial education, better employability skills development, confidence building, career management and entrepreneurship
  • Talent Match: The aim of the project is to engage with young people aged 18-24 who are long term unemployed and who require intensive support and coaching through a Key Worker approach in order to access a flexible and responsive pathway which will support them to get into, or closer to work.


For 3 decades, we engaged effectively with private, public and voluntary employers in developing work-based traineeship schemes and volunteering work experience for ethnic minority communities and migrant groups to improve their personal, social and economic integration.
