Caring for ALL in the LS25 LS26 LS15 LS14 WF10 community

Welcome

NET A Charity for the over 60’s In Garforth and the surrounding 12 villages of East Leeds

covering 45 sq. miles.

Its ethos is summed up by a comment from one of NET’s clients who commented on our facebook page after being escorted through the vaccine process at the Kippax Health Centre ”You do so much for the community and never want praise, you just want to help because you care” This comment sums up NET’s ethos of supporting the over 60s and over the past two years supporting the community. NET could not operate without the volunteers who work with us. They are the ones that should be applauded for what NET achieves and the services NET provides.

NET Continues to Support The Community

Since March 2020 NET has not only supported the over 60’s and their carers but also with other members of the community needing support during the Covid epidemic. This now continues as we work with on the ENHANCE project. NET has secured funding for an exciting new project, ENHANCE, in collaboration between Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust (LCH) in partnership with Leeds Older People’s Forum to deliver The Enhanced Programme in NNT LS25/26 area. The programme will focus on people aged 60+ who have recently been discharged from hospital

Thank you to everyone who has supported us in 2022. From those of you who come along to regular activities, to those who come along for the occasional coffee. Knowing we make even the slightest difference means so much to us. However, none of what we do would be possible without our team of wonderful volunteers. This has been another difficult and challenging year and our volunteers have stepped up, adapted and been there for all of us, so once more we reiterate that you are truly the Jewels in NET’s crown and say a very sincere thank you! Again we have been overwhelmed by the support from our community, through food donations from major supermarkets, to local businesses, individuals who have crafted gifts for our members and Jemma - Five Towns Home Assistance who made our Christmas Raffle possible with the donation of a wonderful hamper which raised the amazing sum of £350!!!! NET is proud to be working with Leeds City Council and Voluntary Action Leeds to deliver Warm Spaces across our local area. Warm Spaces are places where people can come together in a warm, safe, welcoming environment and enjoy a hot drink and some company. The NET Warm Spaces take place at a variety of different locations around our district, all offer free hot drinks and a range of free refreshments including hot toast and crumpet or cake or scones. The Warm Spaces are open age, so everyone is welcome to come along to enjoy the warmth and some friendly company. NET Organised Warm Spaces are :-

“Not only bingo tea and cakes”. That

has always been our motto and

through out the pandemic we

maintained contact with all our

members. We have provided not

only essential foods but little bags

of cheer and continue to do so.
