About the Forum

The Horsham District Older Peoples Forum (HDOPF) is an independent, non-political, voluntary group that is free to attend and take part in.  It acts as the ‘ears’ and gives a ‘voice’ for people aged 60 and over who reside in the Horsham District Council area or who cares for someone who is.

The Forum exists for anyone to raise issues that relate to or affect local older people.

The Forum holds quarterly public meetings around the district. We take action where possible on issues that are raised i.e take up with local councils or with projects; we also act as an information hub and consultative group for anyone seeking the views of older people in the district on particular plans, topics or schemes that may affect older people.

The Forum is pleased to circulate and publicise information and events that may be of interest to local older people or carers.

The Forum is actively working towards an ‘Age-Friendly’ and ‘Dementia Friendly’ Horsham.
