Forum Recruitment Event

Posted on: February 20th, 2020

On Wednesday 18th March 2023 the Greater Belfast Seniors Forum will be hosting a Forums recruitment event at Belfast City Hall. The event will run from 10am – 1.30pm.

The intention is to recruit new members for individual forums, and the forums represented are:

North Belfast Seniors Forum
West Belfast Over 50s Forum
Shankill Older People’s Forum
Belfast East Seniors Forum
South Belfast Lifestyle Forum
Castlereagh Seniors Forum

Older people living in a forum’s respective area, particularly people who represent older people’s groups, are all eligible to join their local forum.

Older people’s forums help represent the views of older people and address issues affecting older people in their areas. Forums routinely speak with public agencies and decision makers, and also highlight opportunities and services to benefit older people.

To come along to the Forum Recruitment Event please contact John McCandless on 028 9073 5696 or email
