Older People with a Learning Disability(OPLD), can attend a weekly friendship afternoon at The Bridge Cafe in Cross Flatts Park, Beeston. It's on Thursdays 1.00 - 2.30pm.
The aim is to provide a safe place for OPLD from all over Leeds to come together to make new friends. People with learning disabilities are sometimes in supported living and do not choose who they live with.
Some go to a day centre and see the same people, again who they have not chosen to be with. Many people want to make a friend, someone they choose to be friends with hence the Bee Friends Afternoon.
We have games to play and conversation starters to help things along. The Afternoon has been running for 1 year this week and we are having a party to celebrate.
