About Us

Older people are an under-used resource. We have a great deal of knowledge and understanding of the real problems facing our society at this time. More and more groups across the country are being formed to give Seniors a platform to make their views known - our forum is one such group.

Taking the lead from our membership the main Committee and Special Interest Groups meet monthly to agree in which direction our energy should be spent. This involves representing ourselves both in and out of town, organising open events, meeting decision makers, taking part in consultations, being involved in projects, meetings and much, much more...

  • We are an independent, voluntary community group representing the views of our members.
  • We liaise with and assist other groups when a common theme is identified.
  • Our Special Interest Groups (SIGs) get together with others to put a strong case forward to fight our corner. Successfully too!

The Hastings and St Leonards Seniors Forum operates all activities regardless of race, religion, gender, politics or sexuality and we will warmly welcome those from minority groups who wish to contribute to the Forum's diversity.

The members of the forum committee are here, we are governed by our constitution.
