What we do

Older Peoples’ Forums across the County have reached thousands of older people in the past year offering information, practical support, advice and friendship.

Each Forum is calling for more people to join them and make a difference to the lives of older people by making the voice of older people heard by decision makers.

“I don’t know about you, but I am fed up with reading that Britain’s senior generation is costing millions in health care and draining our society. Most older people are fit and healthy and don’t need care. Instead they are a great asset to Kent and the country as a whole.”
— Denise Watts, Talking on behalf of Kent's Older People Forums
