Fifty Plus Forums provide an opportunity for Independent groups of people aged 50+ who meet to discuss issues that affect the lives of older people across Rhondda Cynon Taf.
The meetings promise to deliver interesting and exciting debate about a wide range of issues. Age Connects Morgannwg and Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council support the Forums to build their capacity, to guide them on local and national issues. Forum members are in control of their own Agenda and Campaigns. Each meeting they invite speakers, Assembly Members, Local Councillors and Senior Officers of the Local Authority and Cwm Taf University Health Board to explain how their policies and strategies affect older people. If you have something you want to say and would like the support of other older people in your area, please do not hesitate to join.
