What’s New in Leeds: Farnley Friendly Faces, Young at Arts and Otley Action for Older People’s Day of Dance

We have a few new updates this week for you – if you need any more information on any of the below please contact Hanna on

  • Farnley Friendly Faces at Farnley Neighbourhood ActionThis is a free service for individuals aged 60 and over (including those with memory loss issues), living in Old Farnley, New Farnley, Farnley and Moor Top. It provides one-to-one support for an older person, offering them some company, conversation and support from one of our friendly volunteers, which can be a one hour weekly visit. We are trying to reach out to those older people who may be on their own, have little social contact with friends and family or find it hard to get out. If you are interested in this service we accept referrals from individuals themselves, as well as other professionals (including GP’s), relatives and friends.To find out more, please give Grace a call on 0113 2632945 or come and see us in the office situated in Hillside Hall, Farnley Community Centre, Cross Lane, Farnley, LS12 5AA.
