The Forum (started in Sep. 2008) is a new
and emerging independent ACTION forum
for people over the age of fifty living in Verwood and the surrounding villages
of Alderholt, Chalbury Common, Cranborne, Edmondsham, Horton, Mannington, Three
Legged Cross, Wimborne St. Giles & Woodlands.
A group of local volunteers have come together to guide
its development, initially through a steering group, then through a management
committee. The provision of an open forum meeting will provide local older
people with the opportunity to express their views on local, county and national
issues; look at constructive ways to combat difficulties-, receive information
about developments and opportunities to get involved; work together with other
senior forums and local organisations to improve quality of life.
As a member of the Dorset Association of
Senior Forums this forum is one of 14 senior forums in Dorset working to
influence the planning and delivery of local services.
