Kilkenny Seniors Forum
The Kilkenny Older Peoples Forum (now the Seniors Forum) was established under the Age Friendly initiative in 2010. The structure of the Forum was agreed by older people during consultation meetings and comprises of members from older peoples groups and individuals throughout Kilkenny city and county and has an Executive of 16 members holding monthly meetings at Kilkenny County Council offices, John St., Kilkenny. The Forum is currently looking for new members with a variety of skills and interests to continue to develop Kilkenny as a great place to grow old in.
Membership is free.
The aim of the Seniors Forum is to be the voice of older people throughout Kilkenny. This voluntary group gives the opportunity for older people to share their concerns as seniors living in the community and to work with key agencies and service providers to help resolve these issues. The purpose of the Forum is
- To ensure old people participate in decisions that affect their lives.
- To provide an active channel of communication between the Seniors Forum and the Age Friendly County Alliance which is the over arching group made up of statutory and non statutory agencies that provide services for older people.
- To work together and represent the views of older people at local, regional and national level.
