Havant Borough 50+ Forum

Havant Borough 50+ Forum  was formally launched in April 2002 by the Mayor of Havant at the request of Local Older Residents, following an extensive two year consultation process, led by Age Concern in Havant.

The Forum is sponsored by Adult Services Department (Older People) , Hampshire Primary Care Trust , and
Havant Borough Council . A wide variety of statutory and voluntary organisations have committed to the Havant Borough 50+ Forum as their recognised point of consultation with the Local Older Residents of the Borough of Havant.

Everyone of fifty years old and over living within the Borough as well as their relatives, friends and carers, is encouraged to attend the public meetings held on a regular basis throughout the Borough of Havant and to take the opportunity of voicing their opinions and of raising awareness of issues that matter to them, thus enabling them to influence local decision making.

Monthly Support Group Meetings are held on the first Monday afternoon of each month between 2.00 p.m. and 4.00 p.m. at
Havant Borough Council Offices, Civic Centre Road, Havant  and any individual in the fifty plus age group, or representing older people, is welcome to attend; all views are greatly valued.

So, if you care about the future development of services and amenities for older people living within the Borough of Havant and if you have any matters that you would like to be brought to the attention of those people that make decisions on behalf of the older residents of the Borough of Havant, then please ‘phone or write to any of the contact names.
