Leeds Directory visits Middleton Elderly Aid

Sophie Dawson visited Middleton Elderly Aid Social Centre today (19 April 2023) to speak to their members about the Leeds Directory and how it can be used to access information and signposting advice for a variety of organisations and services that can support people in Leeds.

Sophie commented:

“When speaking to people at the centre, they informed me of issues they’ve had in the past with tradespeople and how this had affected them when trying to find trustworthy businesses that will do a good job for them. I explained about the ‘Green Tick’ check we do on all services that are provided in the home, garden or one to one in the community and about our customer ratings and reviews that can help people assess which tradespeople to trust and invite into their homes.

“It was great to speak to people at Middleton Elderly Aid and see the centre full of life! We have recently updated our activities calendar with Middleton Elderly Aid’s new timetable which includes regular groups and day trip opportunities (such as a trip to Bury Market which was popular with their members).”
