Time to Shine entered its final year under the most difficult of circumstances for everyone, so we decided to give you a monthly update of where our focus has been, and what we’ve been doing. Here is the most recent.
Our staff team continues to work from home, which brings its own challenges but is proving to be effective.
- worked with our delivery partners to continue to work to reduce social isolation and loneliness – even more crucial during lockdown
- launched Ageism: what does it do to us? – message 3 of Age Proud Leeds
- produced and distributed Shine Magazine fortnightly, electronically and printed
- launched, in partnership with Leeds City Council and Voluntary Action Leeds the RU OK? telephone support service and begun volunteer training
- supported Leeds City Council and all voluntary sector agencies to provide a co-ordinated approach to Covid-19
- submitted a written response to the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Loneliness
- prepared to launch the campaign ‘Time to Shine a Light on Loneliness’
Among other activities during this month, we expect to:
- continue to work with our delivery partners
- produce Shine Magazine fortnightly and encourage older people to provide their stories – link?
- continue to support Leeds City Council and all voluntary sector agencies to provide a co-ordinated approach to Covid-19
