The Age Friendly Steering Group is one of the ways older people are involved in Age Friendly Leeds by guiding the project with their experience, feedback and ideas.
The group meets monthly to share their experience of life as an older person and come up with ways to make things better for older people in Leeds.
It is part of the Friendly Communities project at Leeds Older People’s Forum, which brings together Dementia Friendly and Age Friendly initiatives to help make Leeds the ‘Best City to Grow Old In’.
The group is looking for new members and whilst it already has a great range of people from different walks of life it is important to the group to represent the diverse communities of Leeds.
It would particularly welcome people who live in the South and East of the city, people who can speak up about the poverty faced by some older people, older disabled people and people from Black and Minority Ethnic communities.
Of course any older person (over 50) who is willing to give some time to help the project will be welcomed to the group.
The group meets at Leeds City Museum in Millennium Square, downstairs in the Denny Room (lift available) at 1.30 – 3.00pm on the following dates:
- Tuesday 25 June
- Thursday 29 August
- Tuesday 24 September
- Wednesday 30 October
- Thursday 28 November 2019.
A taxi can be provided for people who need help to get to the meeting.
