International Day of Older Persons (IDOP) Events

The 2019 celebration of International Day of Older Persons in Leeds takes place from 29 September - 20 October (with an additional event on 1 November).

The theme for IDOP Leeds 2019 is Age Friendly Leeds

An Age-Friendly City:
  • enables people of all ages to actively participate in community activities and treats everyone with respect, regardless of their age
  • is a place that makes it easy for older people to stay connected to people that are important to them
  • helps people stay healthy and active even at the oldest ages
    provides appropriate support to those who need it.
Many of the events are inter-generational bringing young and older people together to celebrate. Several of these events are open to the public.

The celebrations will include:
  • A photo exhibition and 2020 calendar at Middleton Elderly Aid
  • A crafty Cafe at Morley Library
  • A 'graduation event' for 30 members of Bramley Elderly Action
