This evaluation of the Leeds Neighbourhood Networks explores how community organisations contribute to healthy ageing.
The Leeds Neighbourhood Network is made up of 37 community groups that provide a wide range of opportunities, activities and services. They are made up of local schemes that aim to support older people to remain living independently and to participate in their communities through a range of neighbourhood-based activities and services.
This piece of work, carried out by Sheffield Hallam University, shares the latest insights from the evaluation of the Leeds Neighbourhood Networks (LNNs), building on previous research.
The report draws on in-depth case studies of six LNNs. Each case study involved a desk-based review of existing evidence and data, and qualitative research with LNN staff, volunteers, members and partners.
Below, you can read our insight slides (which are created to be shared), the full evaluation report, and you can watch a short animated video for a quick overview of the role of the LNNs.
