Kirkgate – City and South Leeds Hub

Kirkgate Forward Leeds entrance

Face-to-face groups are being re-introduced but booking ahead is necessary scroll down for details.

We have put a number of measures in place to ensure everyone using our hub is kept as safe as possible.

Please make sure you know whether your appointment is in-person, over the phone or online before travelling.

For the safety of all users of our service and our staff, harm reduction and needle exchange is currently not available inside the Forward Leeds hubs. This is to minimise the number of people coming into our hubs.

We will meet you to provide support in-person or provide advice over the phone as appropriate. Please call 07814 903978 for harm reduction advice or to organise a visit.
