Drop-In Sessions

What Time?

Almost every Friday afternoon (excluding bank holidays and organised excursions) between 13:30 and 14:30.


The drop-in sessions for the Headingley Friday Support Group are held at the Headingley Enterprise and Arts (HEART) Centre (formerly Headingley Primary School). The HEART Centre is located on Bennett Road in central Headingley. One entrance to Bennett Road is between Boots and Oasis Hair Leeds on Otley Road. The HEART Centre is situated approximately 50 metres on the left hand side. On arrival at the HEART Centre, pass the reception desk on your left and continue straight ahead through the double doors. Follow the corridor around to the right and through another set of double doors. The Headingley Friday Support Group meets in a small room on the left known as the Beckett Room. We look forward to seeing you there.
