YUMs is a fortnightly friendship, social and support group for mums aged 25 and under living in LS10 and LS11. It’s a safe, fun and lively space where we cover different topics each session. Recently we’ve had One YOU come in to talk about healthy eating and the services they provide; screening awareness by the NHS and also SARSVL (Support After Rape and Sexual Violence Leeds) covering sessions on consent and how to prevent sexual assault. During the SARSVL session the group really enjoyed the Tea Consent clip with its powerful message.
The sessions we have coming up include things like pottery painting and First Aid. We usually meet fortnightly on a Monday 12pm-2pm in Middleton unless otherwise stated in the group and have a closed Facebook page where the mums continue to support each other. There is a free Crèche and we provide free transport and lunch.
We currently have space for new group members so if you’re interested or know a mum who’s under 25 living in LS10/11 that would like to join us, please get in touch!
