Baby Week Leeds is back to celebrate their 8th year and we’re excited to announce, it has welcomed some new cousins across the UK!
Baby Week is a registered charity and aims to bring sectors and services together to promote the best start in life. By celebrating services and raising awareness about the importance of early childhood, Baby Week aims to make UK the best place to grow up in. The initiative was inspired by Brazil’s ‘Semana do Bebe’ (UNICEF 2010), and Leeds hosted the first English speaking Baby Week in 2016 with Child Friendly Leeds, NHS and partners across the city.
Her Royal Highness The Princess of Wales visited Leeds earlier this year to talk to people there about early childhood as she launched the ‘Shaping Us’ campaign. Baby Week was discussed amongst other fantastic initiatives putting children and young people at the heart of the city on a case study here.

What people are saying
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”
