Learning and Leisure
LEAP was set up by a group of older people fed up with having nothing to do. So they did something about it.
And their spirit lives on today through our learning and leisure programme covering subjects as diverse as New Age Kurling, singing groups, Tai Chi, languages and IT.
Our activities are limited due to Coronavirus. Check our update page for details. But that doesn't stop us getting together virtually. Find out how you can unlock your Christmas with LEAP in our Christmas Catalogue, out now!
In the past year alone more than 1,300 people took part in our
activities, which take place in Cambuslang, Rutherglen, Hamilton, Strathaven and Stonehouse.
One area proving extremely popular is our IT classes. Digital
exclusion is a real issue for older people, particularly in rural areas.
We believe giving older people digital skills will promote inclusion and make a positive difference to their lives. They can help people
manage their health and wealth, follow their interests and keep in touch with family and friends.
