We offer a programme of activities and trips for older people in Holbeck.

Activities in Holbeck

Our usual activities include the following;

  • Friendship Group: twice a week we hold our Games Afternoon which provides an opportunity to come along and meet with friends old and new and socialise. 
  • Chair-Based Exercise: This weekly gentle exercise group engages older adults and provides the opportunity to participate in exercises that can be practised in class or at home. This helps to maintain independence and prevent possible injuries whilst supporting them to remain active and mobile.
  • Craft Group: The craft group provides a regular opportunity to be creative and learn new skills whilst making new friends through the sharing of different ideas and craft techniques.
  • Bingo Afternoons: once a week on Friday afternoon at St Matthews Community Centre.

We also have an entertainment library featuring books, DVDs and jigsaws for our clients to enjoy. There are plenty in stock to choose from that can be delivered directly to your door. Simply call the office and enquire about our order form to view our selection. You read more here.

Group Outings

Our Group Outings are for everyone in Holbeck, and we make sure they’re affordable for everyone.

If you need any extra support to access our Group Outings, get in touch to discuss how we can help.

  • Meal Outings: On a monthly basis Holbeck Together provides outings to various pubs and restaurants in Yorkshire.
  • Cinema Outings: During the winter we sometimes take trips to the cinema to view the latest releases. This group provides the opportunity for older people to be supported to see the latest films.
  • Further Afield: Throughout the year Holbeck Together provides access to a variety of leisure destinations across the North of England. Outings include visits to the seaside town of Whitby, seeing the animals of Knowsley Safari Park and a relaxing walk around Golden Acre Park.
