Films

People are talking about child friendly Leeds and the voices of children and young people are at the heart of those conversations!​

Across the city the child friendly Leeds network regularly produce and support films to make those voices heard. See a selection of our child friendly films below and let us know if you’d like to be involved in making or sponsoring a film in the future.
