Insightful public information videos will be screened at the White Rose Centre during a drive to raise awareness about a range of services.

DFP Television is staging a Community Roadshow at the centre in Leeds all this week outside H&M in the Lower Mall section.

A variety of organisations are showcasing their films and staff from DFP will be available throughout the week to offer help and advice and hand out information packs to those who want them.

Exhibitions Manager at DFP Television Tracy Todd said:“This is a fantastic platform for the community – about the community and its services.”

A film by NHS Leeds South and East Clinical Commissioning Group on bowel cancer screenings will feature in the roadshow.

Those aged 60 to 74 are invited to participate in the NHS Bowel Cancer Screening Programme. Call 0800 707 6060 to take a test.

Leeds Children’s Hospital Appeal will air their video in the centre, advertising the many ways volunteers can help them through fundraising activities such as the Leeds Half Marathon, Leeds 10k, and many more events. For more information visit www.justgiving.com/leedsth.

The Yorkshire and Humber Reserve Forces and Cadets are using the platform to show how they can inspire young people to aim high, develop their abilities and go further in life.

And NHS Leeds Community will promote its Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT ) service.

The group wants to show what services it has to offer for those suffering from depression, stress or anxiety.

IAPT is open to those aged 17 and over who are registered with a GP in Leeds. Clinicians will be on hand during the week to speak to the public about their concerns. For more information, visit www.leedsiapt.com.

DFP TV’s roadshows take place across the country.
