The Hackney Council Over 55’s Focus group is a consultative group, established over 5 year ago and facilitated by Hackney Council whose aim is to give a collective voice to older people:
To influence decision makers on matters that impact on the daily lives of people aged over 55.
To help to combat disadvantage amongst older people and provide a platform where older people can speak about the issues that affect their health and well being.
The focus group responds to local consultations on matters that affect older people. The Focus group meets quarterly and welcomes new members and enquiries. It offers a varied agenda of topics including a range of information on housing and local issues.
In furtherance of the above objectives the group may:
Organise and support Hackney Council meetings, events and cultural functions
