Coronavirus and older people in Leeds: information and support

Leeds Older People’s Forum is committed to supporting older people in Leeds, and the organisations that support them, through the pandemic. We are very aware that the necessary isolation, for many older people, has led to increased loneliness, social isolation and possible mental health problems.
