Bramley Elderly Action’s vision is a world where people aged 60 and above have the best possible quality of life and involvement within their communities. We run a wide range of support and activities in Bramley, Swinnow and parts of Stanningley, West Leeds. BEA also manages OWLS, the Leeds Neighbourhood Network Scheme for older people living in Burley, Hyde Park, Little Woodhouse, Headingley and parts of Kirkstall.

We're passionate about making sure older people living in our neighbourhood live happier lives.


  • Keeping healthy - we run a range of activities including walking football, dance and tai chi
  • Friendship - we run a wide range of activities to help older people socialise and make local connections including drop ins, cafes, lunch clubs and a busy befriending service
  • Getting out - we run transport services offering day trips and local support to get to the shops
  • Dementia and care support - we offer a day a week of activity and support for those experiencing memory impairment and their carer. This can include a light lunch, singing, trips out and help and advice to access other services and equipment.
  • Digital support - we help to make sure people connected to friends and family with a three-month tablet loan, volunteer guidance and drop-ins.
  • Help and advice - we provide useful information and advice on a range of issues such as housing, benefits, winter warmth, bereavement, mobility aids, statutory and local services.
