Action runs 12 different projects with children and elderly people. Take a look on the Projects tab above and see which ones you think might be for you! 

Last year, Action ran 8 residential trips and numerous day trips for young people, including for those who are from deprived areas, are young carers or who have learning difficulties. Highlights include trips to the zoo, canoeing, and even tree top trekking. The year also saw 40 visits to elderly care homes and over 80 local elderly people attended our annual Older People's Tea Party. 

You can be part of all of this and get involved in your local Leed community.
