In light of many discussions and updates that you may have seen over the past few days, it is with great sadness that The Square, our family support centre which was due to open next week, will no longer be re-opening as planned.

As you may have seen, Leeds along with other surrounding areas is currently on the Public Health watch list with cases rising daily, and as much as we can’t wait to see our families, our priority is to keep everyone safe.

As a team at Candlelighters, we know that we have to be agile and respond to any challenges that we may come across as we navigate our way through the pandemic.

Wherever we all are, physically or virtually, we are determined now more than ever to continue providing ongoing support to our families so will therefore be continuing to deliver our services virtually.

We, of course, will let you know of any changes as soon as we possibly can, but for now, please stay with us as we work through these challenging times.

Thank you all so much for your continued support.
If you have any questions or queries please just give us a call on our usual number, 0113 887 8333 or email
