The third Liverpool City Region Older Persons’ Forum took place on Friday 17 May at Bootle Town Hall.
Older People from the Liverpool City Region area attended the meeting and listened to talks from a variety of speakers. Forum members including members received email best wishes from the Liverpool City Region Mayor, Steve Rotheram, and heard from members of his team who spoke about his plans for older people in our region.
Members heard about a new Age Friendly Retail project which will be extended across the City Region and also about progress with the dementia pledges.There was time for members to raise their own issues and for discussion.
We also had attendances from local dignitaries and information stalls were provided from HOP and House of Memories (National Museums Liverpool), Shelter, Merseyrail, One Vision, Riverside Housing.
