Become a Community Correspondent for Time to Shine – Latest Opportunities

Older people (over the age of 50) write for us as Community Correspondents for the Time to Shine website.

You can find some examples of their writing here:

Community Correspondent: Delia Muir on dementia and caring

Community Correspondent: Margaret Bell attends the Dementia Friendly performance of Anniversary

Community Correspondent: Jacqui Smith attends Blackthorn at West Yorkshire Playhouse

Time to Shine is guided by older people, for older people, and we want their take on what’s happening in their community. We want older people to write about the local news, their own experiences, and to cover events in Leeds. We especially want to hear from older people about what matters most to them. 

There are many different writing opportunities for Community Correspondents. Over time we hope to create a pool of older people who cover news and events across Leeds and are willing to share their wisdom, experience and perspective. No previous experience is needed and staff are on-hand to support anyone who wants to get involved. 

One such opportunity arranged with West Yorkshire Playhouse is complimentary tickets for our Community Correspondents to cover some of their events including press nights. Please let us know if you’d be interested in reviewing any of these events or if you have anything else you want write about. 

You can download the flyer below about becoming a Community Correspondent for Time to Shine. Please circulate this to anyone in your network that might be interested. 

Email Jim on or call him on 0113 244 1697 if you want to get involved.
