Today we begin a new series with Katrine Madsen who has been working with Leeds Citizens for the past six months as a community organiser. We will be looking at community leaders across the city who are making a difference to people’s lives in difficult circumstances. We are particularly looking at people of faith to see what motivates them, what keeps them going and what motivates them to give up some of their own comforts to help others.

In our first episode, Katrine is talking to Ed Carlisle who is a community leader from South Leeds.
