Although no longer the powerful controlling force it once was, the Leathersellers' Company remains actively involved with the British leather industry, providing funding for technical education, research, and the conservation and display of historic leather items, and supplying representatives to sit on the boards of various industry bodies.

The role of the UK Leather Federation (formerly the British Leather Confederation) is to represent and promote the interests of the UK leather-producing industry and all those who support, supply or use the output of the UK leather industry in their activities.
Today, the Leathersellers' Company administers a number of ancient trusts and also has its own Charitable Fund. The Leathersellers' Company awards University Grants (Exhibitions) of up to £4,000 a year, to study for a full-time Degree at any UK University.
