The Leeds Older People’s Forum was established in March 1994 and has grown to a citywide membership of over 100 voluntary sector organisations working with older people across Leeds, including the Neighbourhood Network Schemes.All member organisations provide services dedicated to older people though they are not necessarily an older people’s organisation.
The aims of the Forum are:
To promote the well-being of all older people in the city of Leeds, and to give a more powerful voice to older people in shaping their city for the benefit of all its citizens.
Leeds Older People’s Forum does this by:
- Representing older people’s views, needs and aspirations
- Enabling older people’s organisations to participate fully in policy discussion and development
- Enabling and sustaining good communication between individuals, groups and public, private and voluntary sector organisations.
- Supporting projects to enhance the wellbeing of older people in Leeds
- Ensuring Leeds Older People’s Forum is an effective and well-run organisation.
Welcome on Board
Following on from the AGM we are pleased to announce that we have elected two new people onto our Management Committee: Tricia Gradys and Jean Townsend. Tricia and Jean both have wide experience of working with older people and working in and with the voluntary sector. We have worked closely with both of them in the past and know that they will be valuable additions to our organisation.
