Our Vision

WiSE aims to enable older people to live at home, whilst reducing social isolation.

We also aim to support those who care for older people in our community.

To achieve this we work independently and with community partners to provide activities, services and opportunities for volunteering.

We’re always looking for help from volunteers.

There are lots of interesting volunteer roles available – from befriending and transport support, to events and administration support.

We also have a small team of paid staff. Occasionally we may advertise roles in the team on this page or on the Voluntary Action Leeds website.
