A brilliant new facility to offer tailored support to children and young people in East Leeds was opened by my colleague Dirk Gilleard yesterday...

Vulnerable children and young people in East Leeds will benefit from a range of new services at this fantastic new facility, called ‘The Retreat’ which is part of the Oakwood Pupil Support Centre on Oakwood Lane. The Retreat will provide a number of additional education and health services to help meet the emotional and behavioural needs of local children and their families. It will provide families with a range of support services including child and adolescent mental health, a play therapist, an art therapist and a ‘Watch it’ team from the NHS which will work to tackle childhood obesity.

The Retreat adds another important element of our provision to support children, young people and their families in East Leeds.
