About Us

The Neighbourhood Elders Team - works in the 13 villages of East Leeds providing support to older people over the age of 60 and their carers. NET’s main aims are to identify and respond to the needs of older people and their carers, reduce loneliness & isolation, promote healthy lifestyles, to enable older people to remain independently within their own community and to enjoy life. The support covers advice, assistance, social activities, befriending, one to one support, friendship groups, events, outings, newsletters, educational and leisure activities. Always with the emphasis on fun and enjoyment for all. Our clients are very active participants in our work. They contribute ideas, skills, talents, time, goods and monetary donations, as well as constant encouragement and feedback. Our volunteer team, which includes our trustees, give a generous level of commitment and hands on service to the organisation, without which many of our activities could not run. Regular coffee mornings provide a great meeting place to make and be with friends. Our friendship groups allow you to make friends and enjoy a varied programme of social activities and speakers at a group closest to you. We provide free confidential information and advice on a range of benefits, entitlements, services and facilities for older people.
