WiSE, Wetherby in Support of the Elderly are a long established local charity. Due to a long standing trustee moving from the area, they are keen to recruit a new trustee with an interest in reducing isolation in the elderly which in turn helps to improve mental health and independence.Anyone who would like more information should contact the Chair of Trustees, via the email address email@example.com
Last year we received a presentation from Linda Glew highlighting a project led by Leeds Older People’s forum in partnership with Leeds City Council with the aim of building an more Age-Friendly Community. Here are some of the ways you can get involved:
Age Friendly Ambassadors
Age Friendly Ambassadors are individuals from organisations, businesses or communities who can help us to make the communities of Leeds Age Friendly places.
Ambassadors may promote Age Friendly Leeds within their workplace, sports team, place of worship, with family and friends or anywhere in their community. You can find out more, watch our short film and sign up as an Age Friendly Ambassador here.
Alongside the guide, we have introduced a convenient online sign up for organisations to state what actions they intend to take and receive Age Friendly and Dementia Friendly stickers for their premises, free publicity, updates and support.
A new publication supported by Leeds City Council, the Shine magazine, has been created in response to the Coronavirus crisis. It shares the stories of older people in Leeds and is available both online and offline. The first three issues can be downloaded from the Shine magazine website – https://timetoshineleeds.
