Starting next month, our Community Advocacy team will be running new Advocacy Hubs in south and west Leeds. Once a fortnight, they will be running separate hub sessions in the Armley and Beeston areas.

At these hubs, our advocates will be able to meet with you one-to-one for up to two 45-minute appointments to help with a single issue. We will also be able to help you to self-advocate (speak up for yourself and your rights) and make phone calls and send emails on your behalf.

Existing in-person hubs now fortnightly

The Hubs we currently run every Tuesday and Thursday in Seacroft and Chapeltown are now going to be every two weeks. This is to ensure that we have staff available at all our sessions.

We will continue to run remote Advocacy Hubs every Wednesday, but they will now be open from 9am-1pm. For these, we can meet with you over the phone or by video call. All our Hubs are free to use and are for people either living in Leeds or registered with a Leeds GP.
