Time To Shine, Leeds Older People's Forum


Run by Leeds Older people's Forum, Time to Shine aims to reduce social isolation and loneliness of the older population in Leeds.

Time to Shine is one of fourteen areas which form Ageing Better ; and ambitious, large-scale programme funded and developed by the National lottery Community Fund. Ageing better aims to improve the life of people aged 50 and over by reducing social isolation and loneliness.

Time to Shine takes a very positive view on learning. We have developed a test and learn approach to finding out what works to reduce loneliness and social isolation amongst older people. The most important thing is to learn from this and use that learning to improve things in the future.
