  4. Castle Vales Older Persons Forum welcomes anyone over 50 with an opinion.
    We meet the Last Wednesday in every month to tackle issues affecting
    Older people on Castle Vale.

    The Forum Meetings are relaxed and friendly and so it is a great meeting place for Local Residents.
    Many of our members are also members of different Resident groups on the Estate and so there is a wealth of experience shared amongst the Group to help solve any problems involving older People.
    We often have guest speakers so members can ask questions and talk to them directly.

    You are now deemed to be an older person at the age of 50 so does this mean that you should immediately start playing bingo? Or start attending Tea Dances? Or give up hope of ever going on another political rally?
    The purpose of our project is to support the Older Person’s Forum to celebrate getting older and recognise the value, experience and vitality of older people. To ensure that the voice of older people on the estate is heard and to network with older persons services, health services to raise the issues facing older people We will encourage people to join the Older Persons Forum, a representative group of older people to bring issues, seek representation and be a campaigning group for older people’s needs.
