Friendly Communities

Time to move to a new website!

The Time to Shine programme will wind down in March 2022, after seven years working with our fantastic delivery partners, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.

Our host organisation – Leeds Older People’s Forum – has launched a beautiful new website, which includes all the key Time to Shine content.

We will not be adding new content to this Time to Shine website, and will eventually close it. We hope you like the new LOPF site, and find it easy to use. Please let us know what you think.




The Time to Shine Friendly Communities project brings together the Age Friendly Leeds and Dementia Friendly Leeds initiatives, to help make Leeds the best city to grow old in.

We have adapted the project to the current extraordinary circumstances. We want to support our communities to become and to remain age and dementia friendly as we go through the coronavirus crisis. We are helping to keep older people connected, share good practice, work in partnership and provide a platform for older people’s voices on Covid-19.
