Leeds link up with Japan

From Leeds City Council website:

A delegation from Leeds has flown to Japan to share the city’s good practice in promoting health and wellbeing for older people.

Representatives from Leeds City Council’s adult social care service, Leeds Institute of Health Sciences and Armley Helping Hands are all-expenses-paid guests of the Japanese government and Professor Toshiaki Kido, of Nihon Fukushi University, Japan.

They will be speaking at three separate conferences organised by the university on aspects of older people’s services. The invitation came as a result of the number of well-advanced projects in Leeds that support older people’s wellbeing in later life.
