Membership of the Forum
The name of the forum was changed from Swindon Older People's Forum (SOPF) to Swindon Seniors Forum (SSF).
Swindon Serniors Forum (SSF) is a community organization that promotes the welfare and interests of older people within the Borough of Swindon and at the same time maintain independence from external influence.
We are run by a management committee of elected volunteers and provide opportunities for encouraging older people to have their say and exert influence on issues that concern them. We aim to keep you informed of our work and updated on all local and national issues that might impact on your life.
The Forum was founded in November 2011 by the late David Brown and Carol Brownlee (read more here) and has continued to grow ever since (read the feature in the Swindon Advertiser). Our most recent achievements include the first Swindon summit on loneliness and the promotional video which we made with Swindon Viewpoint Community Media to raise awareness of the extent and effect of loneliness. Your input is valuable and we look forward to hearing from you about the issues that matter to you most.
