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 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 Community Centre, and 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.
