Is your community centre, surgery or local street in need of a much-needed place to sit? Would a bench be useful to you and your community? Then why not consider applying for a Time to…Take a Seat bench.

Leeds Older People’s Forum are working with the Leeds Civic Trust and have a small funding pot available for you to customise a regular bench into something beautiful that will also benefit your community.

This opportunity is open to all but priority will be given to applications on behalf of organisations within the Neighbourhood Network scheme, or established groups/charitable organisations working with older people within the Leeds local authority area.

The theme for the community benches is ‘Your Time To Shine – Celebrating An Age Friendly City’.

The deadline for applications is 12pm on Monday 18 October.
