It’s an unusual way of connecting people to help beat social isolation.
But for groups of older people in Leeds Lego blocks have helped them to build a brighter future.
The toy bricks have been used to stimulate and empower older people at a workshop aimed at making the city more age friendly.
Coun Lisa Mulherin, executive member for health, wellbeing and adults, said:“By getting people from a range of communities and agencies together in this way, we can encourage them to use their different perspectives and look at how we can continue to make Leeds a place where older people feel their voices are heard and they can influence what happens where they live.”
Leeds is included in the World Health Organisation’s Global Network of Age-friendly Cities and Communities, alongside 33 cities in 22 countries.
