In our Maternity Strategy for Leeds 2015 – 2020 our vision is to be the best city by 2030, and an essential part of this is being the best city for children and young people to grow up in. Baby Week Leeds plays a key role in achieving that vision as it helps to promote the best start in life. The work of Baby Week is not only delivered at a local footprint but feeds into the work done at a regional level with others  following our footsteps.

First time being part of Baby Week Leeds and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it. Fantastic speakers and very informative. Great way of connecting with others too and learning about how other organisations have been working differently during the pandemic. Fantastic to see health inequalities being raised and featured in this event”

Ensuring children have the best start in life is a top priority for Leeds. By working together with our partners in health and education we can make sure that all children are able to benefit from the best services and opportunities as soon as they are born. We are very excited to be bringing Baby Week to Leeds – which will not only help new parents and parents-to-be but also professionals and students.
