BACKGROUND TO BABY WEEK
Baby Week Leeds launched in September 2016 and is an initiative aimed at bringing sectors and services together to promote the best start in life. Baby Week was inspired by a research visit to Canela (Brazil) by Churchill fellow Lucy Potter (Founder) in 2014 and this led to Leeds hosting the first English-speaking week. It aims to raise awareness of services that advocate for early intervention, existing support available and brings sectors together to promote all things maternity, early years and wellbeing. Baby Week Leeds is supported by Child Friendly Leeds, Leeds City Council, NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Groups, Leeds Teaching Hospitals and Leeds Community Healthcare and is now a UK registered charity (Charity number 1178324) sharing the initiative across UK. This year it has also been sponsored by Leeds Bid and Leeds Community Foundation. In addition, there are two more Baby Weeks taking place across England in November 2021.
