LOPF Intensive Volunteering Survey

Leeds Older People’s Forum would like to understand people’s appetite to undertaking intensive volunteering when they retire. Intensive volunteering is defined as between part and full time for between two to four months.

Such opportunities are commonplace for young people, and could be available to older people to use their time, skills and talents whilst having new experiences and meeting new people.

This survey should only take a minute to complete and will help shape new volunteering opportunities for older people in Leeds.

Create your own user feedback survey


Back in 2013 Leeds Older People’s Forum produced a publication called Generations Together in Leeds which highlighted some of the excellent inter-generational work in the city.

We are now planning on producing an updated (online only) version featuring different organisations and projects in order to highlight the continuing inter-generational work which goes on in Leeds and we are looking for organisations which would be interested in being involved.
