Out of the Shadows: Time to Shine is a programme, led by older people, that aims to reduce loneliness and social isolation in people over the age of 50.
These are major issues, not fully understood, and our job is to learn what makes a difference.
Time to Shine works in partnership to deliver activities, training and campaigns across Leeds that celebrate and promote positive ageing.
What we learn will help older people live fulfilling lives now and in the future.
Time to shine is working towards four ambitious outcomes by 2021.
1. Are less isolated
2. Feel confident to participate in their communities
3. Are actively involved in the design and delivery of Time to Shine
4. Work better together to coordinate services and support for isolated older people
A booklet summarising all our projects and some of what we’ve learned during our first year is available to download here.
