Age Friendly Leeds

Age Friendly Leeds is an initiative working to enable people of all ages to participate in community life by making it easier for older people to stay connected, healthy and included. In practical terms, an age friendly city adapts its structures and services to be accessible to and inclusive of older people with varying needs and capacities.

Guided by older people in Leeds and in partnership with Leeds City Council, Leeds Older People's Forum has written an Age Friendly Charter for the city. Organisations and businesses, including community pharmacies, can sign up to the charter to help us make Leeds an Age Friendly city. If your community pharmacy would like to sign up, there is information here about how to do so, you will then be added to the list of committed organisations and be sent a printed copy of the charter to display. The Come In and Rest scheme is one practical way in which organisations can become more age friendly  - participating businesses and organisations put a sticker in their window to let people know they're a welcoming place where older people can take a seat when they need to, without the obligation to make a purchase.  More information about the scheme and how to sign up can be found here.
