Bramley Elderly Action (BEA) is a charity which provides opportunities and support for older people, aged 60 and above, in Bramley, Swinnow and parts of Stanningley, Leeds (West Yorkshire).


BEA’s regular activities have been temporarily suspended in response to the coronavirus pandemic. But we’re still here on the phone, online and delivering shopping. We are offering the following temporary free services for people aged 60+ in our area:

  • Weekly Shopping Delivery Service – bringing you essentials from the supermarket
  • Phone line – call us Monday-Friday 9-4pm on 0113 236 1644 / Emails to info@bramleyea.org.uk checked daily
  • Phone calls to you on a regular basis to keep in contact and for a chat with staff and phone befriending volunteers.
  • Phone a New Friend: A new service to buddy up BEA members for a weekly chat with each other – so that you’re helping someone else to stay chipper and stay calm.

If you’re not yet a member of BEA, please get in touch. We can support you with shopping and phone services right away.  Give us a call today on 0113 236 1644.

We run a range of services to promote the best possible quality of life for older people in the local community.

We have 1,500 members. Our services are carried out by paid staff and volunteers. BEA is run by a Board of Trustees made up of local older people. Our patron is local MP, Rachel Reeves.

We are one of nearly 40 Neighbourhood Network Schemes in Leeds, promoting the independence, health and wellbeing of older people throughout the city.

BEA also manages Bramley Lawn – an innovative social centre for the whole community – runs upBEAt – a social enterprise arm which manages our community shop – and manages OWLS – Older, Wiser, Local Seniors, which supports older people in Burley, Hyde Park, Little Woodhouse and parts of Headingley and Kirkstall.

Our office – at Bramley Community Centre, Waterloo Lane, Bramley, LS13 2JB – is staffed 9.00-4.00, Monday-Friday (except bank holidays.)
