Lesley is part of the local support network

I don’t live on the Estate but I’ve been a neighbour since 1997, and part of the Over 50s Club since 2005. I’d tell new people to the area to investigate all the services that are available and don’t be too proud to ask for help. The Tender Loving Care group go visit older people in their homes if they’re wheelchair users. And we have the Time Bank where we swap skills and help each other. Being part of that group makes me really proud. You’re never as helpless as you think you are.
