Keeping you up-to-date with news and activities for older people


Read our latest newsletter

Every month we publish a newsletter, highlighting all the latest information, advice and guidance for the over 50s in Calderdale.  If you aren’t on our email list, its quick and easy to sign up and we won’t bombard you with emails or pass your details to anyone else.

Get involved

With more than a third of Calderdale residents now aged over 50 and continuing to grow, the role of the Forum will become more important over the next few years. Now is a great time to get involved with Calderdale Forum 50 Plus.

We meet every two months to discuss the issues affecting the lives of older people in Calderdale and are now recruiting local residents to join our 50-Plus Insight Panel.
