Older People

We are all living longer and often healthier lives. As the numbers of older people increase, society must adapt to this demographic change to ensure quality of living for all.

If your organisation works to support older people in Leeds you can help to plan and develop services, network and keep up to date with issues affecting older people through Leeds Older People's Forum.
