Being You Leeds runs groups and activities 7 days a week, including on evenings and weekends in local venues across Leeds.

These groups are fun, welcoming sessions based around activities group members are interested in. Our current group activities list includes walking, cycling, arts, knitting, gym, ESOL learning and much more. We can also support people to set up their own sessions based on their interests.

All of these groups aim to support people to stay well, learn new things, have fun, and connect with others in their communities. Anyone in Leeds aged 16+ is welcome to join.

Booking for our groups is essential. Please contact the member of staff listed on the activity you are interested in to get booked in!

Do you have an idea for a new or existing wellbeing focused group in Leeds? See below how Being You Leeds can help fund your idea!

Please note: We are not a crisis service, so we can’t support people in moments of mental health crisis. However, if you are having a hard time with your mental health and come along to our groups, our staff are all trained to support you and can help you get more specialist mental health support.

You might not be sure if you feel ready to come to a group or activity for various reasons, including feeling anxious, nervous about meeting new people or having accessibility needs. All our groups are led by friendly, trained leaders and volunteers and we have friendly local befrienders from all sorts of backgrounds who can help you join a group or activity near you for the first time!

Our befrienders can help with:

  • building your confidence and self esteem
  • attending a Being You Leeds group with you
  • planning your journey to and from a Being You Leeds group  
  • working out which buses you need for your journey
  • helping you integrate with group members and involve you in group discussions 
  • helping you make friends, and much more!
