Business Support

Leeds Directory works in partnership with the following organisations to provide with you support and opportunity to enhance your service offer. 

Your listing is the way you communicate with potential customers through the Leeds Directory so it is important that it reflects the service you provide and that it is up to date. When building or updating your listing it is important to;

  • Prioritise your first 500 characters
  • Use all the fields
  • Keep your listing up to date
  • Encourage customers to rate and review your service

For more detail on these and other important considerations please download our guidance on making the most of your listing.

Leeds Directory has joined with Leeds Older Peoples Forum and Time to Shine and is working to promote Age and Dementia Friendly communities across the city of Leeds. We will now be including on our website information on all businesses and organisations who have committed to removing barriers to make themselves more accessible to older people and people living with dementia. Providers listed with the Leeds Directory will be able to display the relevant logos on their listing and website users will be able to customise their searches based on these criteria.

Find out more and commit to being Age and Dementia Friendly 

Leeds Directory is also working with Leeds Older Peoples Forum and Time to Shine to highlight the “Come in and Rest” scheme which enables older people to plan activities in the community. Businesses who join the scheme put a “come in and rest” sticker in their window to let people know that it is a welcoming place where older people can sit and rest for a few moments, without the obligation to buy anything or use the service.

Businesses and organisations can sign up to the Come in and Rest scheme only, or this can be part of their action plan when you sign up to become more Age and Dementia Friendly. This scheme is aimed at business with premises in the community.

For more information and to sign up to the Come in and Rest scheme please visit the Time to Shine Project website or contact them on 0113 244 1697

Trading Standards is responsible for protecting both you and your community against rogue traders and traders who have acted unfairly.
