Group support

Group Work at The Market Place

If you have used any of the services at The Market Place you can get more involved by joining one of our groups. Group Work at The Market Place is varied and includes:

Voice and Influence

Voice and Influence groups are split into two small groups that give young people an opportunity to have their voices heard and influences how services develop for young people at The Market Place and across Leeds.

SHOUT is a group for anyone aged 11-14 who has come to The Market Place.

HYPE is a group for anyone aged 15-25 who has come to The Market Place.

Both groups meet at The Market Place every 2 weeks on Fridays between 4:30-6:30pm

Voice and Influence groups help to develop services at The Market Place and to help other services across Leeds become more young person centred.

Although these are serious issues for young people we try to make it fun and engaging through activities, games, food and small group work.

Find out more about HYPE's past activities.

How to get involved:

After you have started using any of our services at The Market Place let any worker know you’re interested and give them your contact details (email and telephone number).
A youth worker will then contact you to arrange for you to come and try a ‘taster’ session on a Friday. We will then call you after you have visited to see what you think.

If you are a professional wanting to know about the Voice and Influence groups please call us on 0113 246 1659 or email


The THRU project stands for Talking, Help, Relate, Understand. It is a peer support group for young people 16 -24 run by Leeds MIND from The Market Place venue. Peer support means supporting each other using shared personal experiences.

The THRU group is an opportunity to share and talk about your own personal experiences and get support from others who may be experiencing similar issues. In turn listening to and supporting others can also be helpful to your own emotional health and well-being.

If you would like to find out more about the THRU group please contact the Leeds Mind Peer Support service on 0113 305 5803 or by email at to book an introduction appointment.

Lifesmart Workshops

Lifesmart workshops are for anyone aged 11-19. They are one-off 2 hour workshops to look at specific themes such as Self-Harm, Anxiety, Exam Stress and Anger Management.

Each workshop explores what it is, how it affects us personally, recognising personal triggers and signs, then looking at short and long term coping strategies. All workshops focus on someone trying to understand a little bit about what is going on or happening for them as well as to get some practical tips/distraction techniques to help them.

For further information, or to sign up to a workshop, you can contact us via email at or call us on 0113 246 1659.
