Are you a mum age 24 and under? Do you live in West Leeds? Are you pregnant or have had your baby in 2021/22?
During March Leeds Bosom Buddies and Women’s Health Matters are holding a series of listening workshops across inner city areas around their feeding experiences or planned feeding choices.
They want to hear from you about your feeding experiences, choices and what you would like to see in Leeds around this.
The aim of the workshops is to help increase the support given to young mums in Leeds and look at removing any barriers to accessing groups in their area. We are hoping to co-produce a better service with the parents of this age we are serving.
They are offering a shopping voucher for your time and can refund bus fares. Thanks to the generosity of councillors in Armley and Bramley & Stanningley wards in those areas they can offer a lunch/brunch and ‘double the voucher’ incentive.
The dates available are:
Friday 11 March, 12.30 – 2pm, at Chapeltown Children’s Centre, 62 Leopold Street LS7 4AW.
Monday 14 March, 11-12.30pm, at Armley Community Hub, Stocks Hill, Armley LS12 1UQ.
Wednesday 16 March, 10-11.30am, at Bramley Resource Centre, 79 Fairfield Terrace, LS13 3DQ.
Monday 21 March, 11-12.30pm at Gipton South Children’s Centre, Coldcotes Grove, Gipton, LS9 6QJ.
Wednesday 23 March, 11am-12.30pm at Burley Park Children’s Centre, St Matthias Street, LS4 2DZ.
