Anxiety Leeds was founded in July 2013. Our aims are:
- To provide a safe and welcoming environment for people who suffer from anxiety.
- To provide service user lead discussions.
- To provide an environment that encourages mutual support and encouragement between service users.
In August 2017, we published an impact report. It showed that attending our group can lead people to feel less alone, more positive about life and even reduce their day-to-day worrying.
We are part of the Chris Worfolk Foundation. Registered charity 1137220.
Our organisation is funded through donations, and by a grant from Leeds City Council’s drop-in and outreach budget, administered by Leeds Mind. We are an independent organisation, not affiliated with either the Council or Mind.
We have been featured on both BBC Radio Leeds and Radio Aire. You can listen to the media clips below. Chris speaking to BBC Radio Leeds about the group:
