An Introduction to Caerphilly County Borough 50+ Forum
Over 50 Caerphilly is the title we have given to our new website and Facebook page. We are a voluntary organisation whose aim is to improve the quality of life for the over 50s residents and create age friendly communities in the County Borough of Caerphilly.
The Caerphilly Borough 50+ Forum was established in 2004 as part of the Welsh Government’s Strategy for Older People in Wales. A key role of the forum has been to be a voice for those who are 50+ across the borough, and a group that the Local Authority and other organisations can consult with on issues relating to this age group.
Through its activities and projects the Forum seeks to:
- promote the interests, participation and engagement of people aged fifty and over in the Borough and provide them with an opportunity to express, publicise and present their views, opinions or complaints.
- To provide information relevant to residents of the Borough particularly to those over 50 but also friends and relatives who care for them
- Identify any area where they can influence the improvement of the well-being of the residents of the Borough over 50 years old
