Newport Senior Citizens Forum 

The Forum provides a voice for the over 50s in Newport and members volunteer to help improve the quality of life for older people by influencing the way services are planned.

Members work with Newport City Council, health, local business and voluntary organisations.

The Forum is a committee of elected members and anyone can join for free.

Public meetings are held on the second Monday of the month in January, April, July and October from 2- 4pm in the Castle Room at the Newport Centre - everyone is welcome, just turn up and share your views!
