Out and About Initiative
The Out and About initiative tackles loneliness in the city’s older population. Volunteers work with older people to connect them with activities that keep them both physically and mentally stimulated, to expand their social circles, and to work out the transport logistics that enable them to get out and about.
"I am genuinely delighted to welcome Cities of Service to Kirklees. It’s coming at a really crucial time for us, when we are trying to shape and develop new responses to our challenges and I think we will be able to learn a great deal from the other Cities of Service around the globe."Adrian Lythgo, Chief Executive, Kirklees Council
