Here at Kidz Klub we recognise that we are all experiencing challenging times at the moment and we want to continue to support our families as much as possible whilst keeping everyone safe. You can read below of some of the ways we hope to do this currently.

  • We are continuing to send your Kidz Klub Sheets and will be doing so as long as we are able. They will have competitions and the usual activities to help keep your children busy.

  • We are also putting entertaining videos on our You Tube channel to keep the children connected to Kidz Klub and allow them to see friendly faces at this challenging time. You can subscribe to our channel here.

  • As the latest guidelines remind us, it's so important to wash our hands regularly, particularly as children go back to school. Here's a really useful video of Russell (our amazing bus 1 captain) showing your children how to wash their hands really well.

How to wash your hands well

  • We will gradually start visiting in the next weeks while you will still receive the colouring sheets through the post. In preparation of us coming back, could you remind your child of social distancing rules and that, unfortunately, we can't hug or have any physical contact with your child.

  •  If you need some support, or just a friendly voice to speak to, please feel free to call us on 0113 2456533. 

If you have a specific need, we have signposted some organisations in the community who are co-ordinating or offering support below. Kidz Klub are working closely with the local food banks and Leeds City Council/Doing Good Leeds and supporting their efforts for our families.

So if you struggle to gain access through them directly, please feel free to call or email us as we may be able to help.
