4 December | Network Meeting for Organisations Working with Older People

Network Meeting and chance to share practice 4th December 2.00pm at HEART, Headingley

Over the past year Time to Shine has been holding network meetings for Time to Shine Delivery partners of all sizes, they have decided it would be a good idea to extend these to any organisation that works with older people in Leeds.

The meetings usually have a theme, and biscuits.

They will kick off with one in December, with a focus on Mental Health. This follows on from discussions they have been having about the prevalence of anxiety in some socially isolated older people, which led to questions about IAPT, so they are planning a meeting where:

  • Amy Darcy from Community Links will be able to tell us how the newly titled Leeds Mental Wellbeing Service works for older people.

  • Time to Shine will sharing the final draft of the Time to Shine Anxiety toolkit which we have pulled together following comments from delivery partners.

  • Zoe Limbert from Mindwell will be with there to talk about how to use the website and will take feedback about how age friendly it is if you have any comments

  • There will also be information available from Leeds Recovery College

Anyone with an interest in the subject, who would like to share ways of working or ask how others tackle things, would be very welcome.

Meetings are fairly informal, with a guest speaker or two, followed by quick updates from those around the room, and then a focussed discussion on the topic.

There is usually plenty of opportunity to network as well.

The event is free and will be at HEART in Headingley.
