Caring Together and BAME have been in talks with the aim of organising a joint Walking Group in Little London and Woodhouse. If anyone is interested in taking part in any future walks contact Caring Together on 2430298 and we can organise a meeting of all those interested. It is likely that the walks will be starting around April. The walks will be around the Leeds area and will be likely of a moderate length though participants will have input into both the location and intensity of the walks.
Since Time To Talk Day first launched in 2014, it has sparked millions of conversations in schools, homes, workplaces, in the media and online.
Mental health problems affect one in four of us, yet people are still afraid to talk about it. Time to Talk Day encourages everyone to talk about mental health.
Hundreds of events around the country took place to get people talking about mental health.
Caring Together held it’s own event last Thursday at Little London Community Centre. There was plant potting and craft tables to keep everyone occupied accompanied by cakes-a-plenty and copious hot drinks. It was a lovely relaxed session and all seemed to enjoy the afternoon.
Caring Together visited Tetley’s on Monday for the ‘Connect and Create’ session supported by Arts and Minds Leeds. Ben, one of the attendees said:
‘An afternoon in the beautiful art deco Tetley building….worth a visit if not even joining a workshop session..some of us joined Arts and Minds for their Connect and Create Session today. The theme was ‘Concrete Poetry …not as heavy as it sounds…if you want to know what it is ask Lisa she’s an expert now……I think we all enjoyed it anyway……..BeN BenBENbenbebnbnnBNNEENNN’
Odette, the local PCSO for the Hyde Park and Woodhouse area visited the Friday Group last week to see if the group had any concerns or issues that they wished to air. That and to introduce herself. We look forward to working together closely in the year ahead.

Housed in what was once the world’s largest Woollen Mill, Leeds Industrial Museum houses a wealth of gems located in a beautiful riverside setting. Step back in time to learn about the industrial history of Leeds from manufacturing textiles and clothing to printing, engineering and locomotives, for which the city was world famous.
