Join the Forum and help us to support the over 50’s in Calderdale

This is an exciting time for Calderdale Forum 50 Plus as the council has committed to making Calderdale an “age-friendly” region.

With more than a third of residents now aged over 50, the role of the Forum will become more important over the next few years.

Join our Insight Panel

Once a month we will contact you by email and ask for:

  • Your views on the content we have been publishing in the last month
  • The issues that concern you, your family, friends and neighbours
  • Suggestions for making Calderdale a better place for older people.

In order to contribute, you will need access to the internet and an email address and keep abreast of our online communications – website, email newsletters and/or social media.

Attend a Committee meeting and tell us your views

We are looking for residents of Calderdale who would like to come along to our bi-monthly meetings: to hear more about the work we do and contribute their views on life in Calderdale for the over 50s.

We are looking for Calderdale residents to join our committee and help steer the work of the Forum.

We are looking for two new members to complement the management committee’s existing skills.  People with an interest in improving the lives of older people who have experience in the commercial, public or charitable sectors.  Specific skills in funding bids, strategic planning, sales & marketing or have a track record of volunteering are welcome to apply.  We are also looking for applicants who can represent the Asian community in Calderdale.

What will you be doing?

The committee meets bi-monthly with one Annual General Meeting each year and directs the work of a small team of communications professionals that provide a trusted, informed and independent source of information for this age group through a modern website, social media and regular newsletters.

You will be expected to contribute your ideas and skills to help develop the future role of the Forum as the central voice for the over 50 population in an “age-friendly” Calderdale. Your role could also involve attending external meetings, liaising with other charities, public bodies and community groups that target or work with older people in Calderdale and across the UK and keeping up-to-date with research papers, news and issues affecting older people in our society.
