Baby Week 2019 Conference for Health Staff

Baby Week is back for its fourth time this November with the theme ‘Making connections: Bonding, healthy brains and wellbeing for all’.

We have a fantastic calendar of events ready for you!

Following on from Brazil’s model, Leeds hosted the first English speaking week and since then has had interest from several other towns and cities, including Hull and Bradford hosting their own.

Baby Week is now a national charity and in Leeds it aims to bring sectors and services together to promote the Best Start in life. We would be grateful for your support in promoting the week and sharing details of it with friends, family and colleagues over the coming weeks.  

Baby Week Leeds 2019 will feature many events throughout the city including activities at libraries and at your local children centres. There will also be opportunities to enhance services and have your say, as well as many more fun city wide events.

It’s great to see so many partners involved this year so please visit the website to see the full schedule of events.
