The Forum is a regular meeting for older people to have a say about the things that matter to them. The Forum offers a chance to find out about different services available to older people and to help influence the way these services are delivered. It is also a good opportunity to meet people and enjoy a social gathering.
Following the successful launch in July 2012, the Forum now meets regularly at Forum meetings every other month. Not to mention other special events throughout the year!
You can also keep up-to-date on all our activities by reading our newsletter, ‘The Voice‘ and you’ll find booking forms on the same page.
