Our Forum is an independent voluntary organisation based in the London Borough of Enfield. Established in 1999, we now have more than 5,000 members aged 50 and over but work across the generations to improve the lives of all residents.
We have two main aims
to inform our members about policies and events that affect their lives and to campaign for a better, fairer society, especially for older people
to offer a wide range of activities to help our members keep socially and physically active
Regular meetings with interesting speakers
We hold meetings at various venues around the borough, including the last Tuesday of every month at the Civic Centre. This gives everyone the chance to hear – and question – speakers from the council, health bodies, government departments, police etc on how their policies and initiatives will affect us all. We also have talks from groups and individuals covering anything from caring for relatives or dealing with bereavement to building a family tree or avoiding scams.

We run an annual Winter Fair Day, Falls Prevention Day and Fun(d)-raising Day which all offer information, entertainment and the chance to participate in a range of activities.
