September 2005

HDT was started in 2005 by local residents with the aim of creating enterprising initiatives that contribute to the quality of life and sustainable regeneration of Headingley. It has grown to have the largest membership (over 1,000) of any Development Trust in the country. It is this membership that is the driving force for HDT and they have supported the development of HEART by active involvement, fundraising and personal investment. Volunteers, mostly drawn from HDT members, play a vital role in helping to run the centre and create a welcoming environment and atmosphere for visitors and use.
