Forum acts on over 50’s concerns

October 31 2018

South Gloucestershire Over 50's Forum has organised a talk as they react to a recent survey.

The survey was open to residents of South Gloucestershire aged 50 - 70 years old.  Responses showed that more than half of the respondents were concerned about adult care. 

The forum has organised a talk by Councillor Ben Stokes, Lead member for Adult Care. The councillor has been asked to discuss key concerns including; how the council will address resident’s future care needs with an increasing number of older people, how do resident’s afford paying for their care needs, and whether self care is actually no care. 

The meeting is from 6pm - 8pm on Wednesday 7 November at the Pop-In Cafe in Yate.
