Jamaica Society Leeds

About the Jamaica Society Leeds
The Jamaica Society Leeds is one of the UK's most revered Jamaican community organisations. Founded by six first generations Jamaicans in 1977, we fly the flag for Jamaica, land we love, and Leeds, the city we love and champion the preservation and heritage of Jamaican culture. A registered charity, we operate from our very own Jamaica House, based in the heart of the African Caribbean community that we have been committed to caring for, developing and supporting for decades.

Our activities include:
  • Championing Jamaican Heritage and Culture
  • Advocacy for Jamaican and other Caribbean Communities
  • Annual Events including our Charity Ball and Service of Thanksgiving to mark Jamaica's Independence
  • Collaboration with other Caribbean Community Organisations
  • Working with Diaspora networks, regionally, nationally and internationally
  • Care and support for sick and vulnerable society and community members
  • Providing a platform for news and updates from Jamaica's Government agencies and corporate sector

Running throughout 2019 our Eulogy Project celebrates the journeys, lives and heritage of first generation
Jamaicans who came to Leeds in the 1940's - 60's and who are no longer with us. Eulogy is made possible with thanks to money raised by National Lottery players, our Eulogy project has been supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and also by Leeds Inspired and National Windrush Day 2019.
