The Friendly Communities project brings together the Age Friendly and Dementia Friendly campaigns to help make Leeds the ‘Best City to Grow Old In’. Age Friendly Leeds aims to make Leeds a city that enables people of all ages to actively participate in community life. We support Age Friendly initiatives including Come in and Rest and Age Friendly Ambassadors. Dementia Friendly Leeds aims to raise awareness of dementia and make services more accessible. We encourage and support organisations and businesses to work towards becoming Age and Dementia Friendly.
