The Forums

The Greater London Forum for Older People supports the Forums and Groups through advice on governance; marketing; publicity; influencing the local Council, NHS, MPs, MEPs and statuary bodies; fundraising; training and recruitment of new members.

About the Forums

Local borough Forums are composed of individuals, representatives of older people’s organisations and other bodies working with or for older people in each borough. A Forum’s main concern is representing its own views to the local authorities, MPs, MEPs, GLA members, Councillors and statutory and voluntary agencies. The Forums play a key role in campaigning on national and regional issues that affect older people. A borough Forum provides older people with the opportunity to participate in borough strategic frameworks and policies and gives them the opportunity to be the active voice in the decision-making process for local services. Forums have their own Executive or Management Committee to make policies and plan events. They deal with local policy and have input into regional and national policies.
