Bee Together



Bee Together





Bee Together is a Time to Shine Project aimed at Older People with Learning Disabilities (OPLD).

Time to Shine is managed by Leeds Older People’s Forum (LOPF) and funded by Big Lottery Fund’s Ageing Better programme to reduce social isolation and loneliness amongst people over 50.

NO research has been done into how OPLD cope with ageing, loneliness and isolation and what causes it. Bee Together is about doing just that.

At the beginning of the project we want to connect with socially isolated and lonely OPLD and find out their stories, the difficulties they have and their needs. We will then signpost them to organisations who can help them lead more fulfilling lives.

We want to build up links within communities that can sustain support into the future.

So if you are an organisation interested in taking part please get in touch.

If you know someone who may benefit from taking part in the project tell them about

Bee Together

Building better communities which support everyone is down to all of us. At Health for All in the Bee Together Project we will create the opportunities to make this happen.
