Mrs J was given the Leeds Directory helpline number by her GP as she has severe arthritis which has meant she doesn’t get out of the house very much. “I don’t even see my GP face to face; I request a telephone appointment to save on taxi fares”. Mrs J needed information on local activities that she could attend for some social interaction.
We sent Mrs J details of her local neighbourhood network scheme and other local lunch clubs and outings. Three weeks later, she has found a regular lunch club that she enjoys attending, organised by her local neighbourhood network scheme.
“I used to volunteer at a lunch club so it was nice to see so many on the list you sent. The food was nice and everyone was very jolly; I’m really looking forward to going again. This is currently the only activity I get to so I’m glad I’ve found it.”
“I would definitely recommend the Leeds Directory service to my friends if they were looking for services in Leeds and I have your number safe if I ever need more information.”
