Let’s talk about ageism is the first key message of Age Proud Leeds, the city-wide campaign to raise awareness of ageism and change negative attitudes about ageing and older people.
Please share news and information about Age Proud Leeds within your organization – both with staff and volunteers, and with older people you work with, through your newsletters, social media and groups.
- Have a chat with someone you know – a friend, family member or work colleague – about ageism. You could read our resources Challenging ageism – top tips and Ageing and ageism in the UK first, or just go for it!
- Use the Age Proud quiz, with friends or work colleagues
- Get in touch with us for an activity pack – we can send you some posters and postcards (on which people can write their thoughts) focused on ‘Let’s talk about ageism’ that you can use with a group of up to about 10 people- email firstname.lastname@example.org
- We’re keen to know what people think. Let us know how you get on – you could tell us who you talked to (such as a friend, or work colleague), how many people, what happened and how you feel about it.
- Sign up to be an Age Friendly Ambassador
Get in touch if you would like some campaign resources to use in your building or with groups – we have posters, flyers and postcards. Contact email@example.com
