A new charity initiative, launched in partnership with national palliative and bereavement charity, Sue Ryder, will support people who are grieving in our city, providing a safe place for people to talk about their loss.

The sessions run from our Community Club here at AMT Headingley Stadium on Tuesday afternoons between 2:30pm and 4:30pm.

This space is the third to open in Leeds and comes following the success of other Grief Kind Spaces already established in the city.

Leeds Rhinos legend, Jamie Peacock, is supporting this initiative as an Ambassador for Sue Ryder’s Leeds-based hospice, Wheatfields, which cared for his father since 2019, raising thousands of pounds for the charity.

Run as a drop-in, people can attend for the full two hours or drop in for ten minutes or less to come together with others in a safe and informal place supported by trained Sue Ryder volunteers, helping them share their experience to feel heard and less alone.
