What are forums? Forums are independent organisations which give a collective voice to older people. They are run by older people, for older people. As well as their campaigning efforts, many have social activities, run trips and hold open meetings, helping to break down isolation by providing opportunities for older members of the community to socialise, meet new people and keep in touch with local news.
COPE is your Forum in Cambridgeshire and we acknowledge the valuable financial support from Cambridgeshire County Council, Cambridge City Council, South Cambs District Council, Huntingdon District Council and members' donations.
