Baby Week Leeds was inspired by Brazil’s ‘Semana do Bebe’ supported by UNICEF following a visit to the country by Churchill Fellow Lucy Potter. Leeds hosted the first English speaking Baby Week in 2016 with the support of Leeds NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups & Child Friendly Leeds. The initiative aims to bring sectors and services together to promote the best start in life. Visit babyweek.co.uk for more information about Baby Week events.
