WHO WE ARE

Welcome to our page where we hope to keep in touch with you and let you know what is going on, what we are doing and how you can help and get involved.

We are the Barnet 55+ Forum, an organisation that aims to provide an effective voice to speak and act on behalf of Barnet's older people. These aims will embrace a variety of ways - serious campaigning around issues of concern to older generations, consultation with the Council on the NHS, and Social Care Changes, New Developments and the opening up of Community Facilities. We want a better deal on issues that surround us and affect our quality of life, health and well being.

If you would like find out more, join us or get involved we look forward to hearing from you. Drop us an email and we will get back to you.

As Barnet 55+ Forum and BOPA, which was closely connected to the Forum, have now ceased this blog will not be continuing.  It has not been updated over the past year whilst changes were taking place but it is hoped we will have a new website where there will be a link to this blog for a period of time.

If you want to make a note of any information or download any pictures from here please do so before the blog is taken down.
