Do you know, or should you be interested in, what issues and concerns local older people have?
I’m pleased to say that our next public meeting is fast approaching at 10.30 am on Wednesday 7th June.
The meeting venue is at Age UK, Lavinia House, Dukes Square, Denne Road, Horsham RH12 1GZ if you would like to attend ‘in person’ or attend via Zoom. To reserve your place or request the Zoom joining information, please use our contact us page or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We have, as always, relevant and informative guest speakers:
Laura Robertson, Sussex NHS Commissioners, to update us on the current state of play with our NHS services;
Carol Boniface to tell us about our Neighbourhood Wardens and the excellent work they do in the community.
Danny Grocock, Co-op Estate Planning Services on ‘Tax, Care & Toyboys’.
Linda Clinton, Roundabout Talking News on the valued free weekly news audio service for the visually impaired.
And, of course, time for issues and concerns to be raised and discussed. Usually, there are those attending who often helpfully know the answers, i.e. local Councillors who care about local older peoples’ issues and healthcare professionals.
Our public meetings are always friendly and enjoyable. I’ve always learnt something.
I look forward to seeing you either in person or via Zoom.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
All meetings are free to attend: see future public meeting dates .
Horsham District Older Peoples Forum
The Forum is working towards an ‘Age-Friendly’ and ‘Dementia Friendly’ Horsham.
The Horsham District Older Peoples Forum (HDOPF) is an independent, non-political, voluntary group that is free to attend and participate in. It acts as the ‘ears’ and gives a ‘voice’ to people aged 60 and over who reside in the Horsham District Council area or care for someone who is. The Forum exists for anyone to raise issues related to or affect local older people. The Forum holds quarterly public meetings within the district. We take action where possible on issues raised, i.e. take up with local councils or with a project; we also act as an information hub and consultative group for anyone seeking the views of older people in the district on particular plans, topics, or schemes that may affect older people. The Forum is pleased to circulate and publicise information and any events that may interest local older people or carers.
