Aims & Activities
The GLF supports and facilitates the Forums and Groups run by volunteers providing the voice of older Londoners including minority ethnic elders. Activities include capacity building, conferences, campaigns, training, the Senior London magazine, engagement with and monitoring of local decision-making processes and local, regional and national strategic policy and procedures. 


The Greater London Forum for Older People (GLF) was established as a charity in 1988. It is a voluntary organisation and the umbrella group for older people’s Forums and Groups across the 32 London Boroughs and the City of London and is a voice for grassroots older Londoners.

Tom Hosts Greater London Forum for Older People


Tom Brake chaired a forum for older people on behalf of the Greater London Forum, covering the topic of healthcare provision during austerity times on Thursday November 10th at the Houses of Parliament.

The event was held at Portcullis House, The Boothroyd Room. The Forum heard from Ruth Robertson, Fellow in Health Policy at The King’s Fund, Louise Robinson, Regional Liaison Adviser at the General Medical Council and Tony Burch, ‎GP Advisor at Health Education NW London. There was then a ‘question and answer’ session for participants. The afternoon’s session was chaired by Tom Brake MP.

Tom said: 
“I am looking forward to this annual Greater London Forum for Older People event. The topic at hand, ‘In times of austerity should healthcare be rationed? What should the way forward be?’ is no doubt going to spark an interesting discussion and a spirited debate and I look forward to the question and answer session as well.

"Older people can often feel left out of the political process, so it is vital to support the work the GLF is doing in creating opportunities for political discussion.”
