This is the group name that the local forums for older people across Hambleton work under. It is a group that focuses on issues and is not involved in social activity as this is well catered for by other organisations in the area.
Because the Hambleton area is so spread out it has proved difficult to bring all over fifties, interested in giving older people a voice with service providers, under one large forum.
The local groups are based in the local market towns and representatives from the local groups meet on a regular basis to discuss items of mutual interest and coordinate a joint action plan which includes responses to consultations.
The Forum is represented and supported by Hambleton District Council and has worked to produce the Hambleton District Council Older Persons Plan.
Age UK North Yorkshire who provides office accommodation and a part time worker to support all groups. The Forum produces a regular newsletter for all members.
