Caring Together are extremely pleased to be able to announce the success of a funding bid to Esmée Fairbairn to develop and deliver a Community Resilience Project. This will lead to:
• Improved collaboration with local civic, religious and support organisations as well as local health centres and practices.
• Increased volunteering opportunities
• Development of new more appropriate services, particularly for younger older people.
Caring Together would like to offer our appreciation to Esmée Fairbairn for the confidence that they have shown in us and look forward to collaborating on this exciting Project with them over the next three years.
“Esmée Fairbairn Foundation aims to improve the quality of life for people and communities throughout the UK both now and in the future. We do this by funding the charitable work of organisations with the ideas and ability to achieve positive change”.
Our ‘lunch club’ will be at the community cafe, Little London Community Centre, Oatland Lane between 12 – 1pm.
Come and and join us for a chat over some nice food at very cheap prices.
We are there on the second Wednesday of each month but the cafe is open every Wednesday between 12-1pm
Something that might be of interest: Leeds Civic Trust are holding ‘lunchtime lectures’ – half hour talks about Leeds history on Wednesdays throughout February at Trinity Church, Boar Lane in Leeds city centre. And they are all free!
This week it is the history of back to backs in Leeds – “the fascinating story of the development of these once infamous but now celebrated type of houses, from their creation in the yards of Briggate and Kirkgate in the Industrial Revolution to their spread right across the city in the Victorian period.”
Future subjects are, Medical Care in Leeds, On the waterfront – Leeds as an inland port and Railways, past present and future.
