Conference about How ‘The Time of Our Lives’, Leeds Ageing Well Framework supports the population of Leeds to age well


Are you interested in:

• How ‘The Time of Our Lives’, Leeds Ageing Well Framework supports the population of Leeds to age well?
• Ensuring organisations work together effectively to improve on outcomes being delivered for older people e.g. access to good information, improved health and wellbeing, dignity and addressing inequality?
• Hearing European, national and local perspectives on ageing well?

Join us at this free half day conference http://ageingwell.eventbrite.com/

Speakers and a panel discussion will aim to engage both practitioners/professionals and older citizens of Leeds to ensure the effective development of the ageing well programme to not only improve services for older people in Leeds, but work alongside older people to change attitudes towards ageing, seeing it as a positive experience and emphasising the contribution that older people make to society.
