  1. Catholic Care is based in Leeds and runs many groups throughout Yorkshire helping to tackle isolation and loneliness among older people. The team, including volunteers, shares information with older people, offers them advice and support, and puts them in touch with local partners. Older people are welcome to call in to our community groups or to telephone us. Please see our website for more details.

    In Kirklees we ran the former Deanery Project, and we continue to run several groups in the Sheepridge area of Huddersfield.

    A range of groups and activities enable older people to maintain or improve their fitness (our exercise programme is supported by Age UK), meet new people, develop new skills and lead more fulfilling lives. Older people living with dementia are most welcome to attend with their carer and join in the fun.

    Happy Wednesday – members enjoy ‘aerobics for mature movers’
    Thursday Friends – members enjoy a lunch club with activities, gentle exercises, a raffle and bingo
    Friday Friends – members enjoy a lunch club, raffle and bingo
