The Kensington and Chelsea Forum  
for Older Residents

The independent forum for the older residents of the Royal Borough

                             The Kensington and Chelsea Forum for Older Residents creates an environment in which the older residents of the Royal Borough can be part of the decision-making process, influencing policies that affect their lives

​​ ​​
The Kensington and Chelsea Forum for Older Residents is the Royal Borough’s largest independent older people’s forum dedicated to creating an environment in which older people are active partners in the decisions that affect their lives. We seek higher standards of health and safety in the community and we work to alleviate social isolation.

We have a record since our inception in 1996 of helping older residents gain the confidence to influence the decision-making process.

Our diverse membership represents the entire Borough and currently stands at over 1,450 members.

University College Research Group
on the effects of ageing on the imune system 
Wednesday 26th September
Brompton Library
210 Old Brompton Road, SW5 0BY
As we grow older our ability to fight infection and illness is often diminished. This research aims to better understand how the immune system functions in older individuals (as compared to younger individuals), which they hope will ultimately lead to developments in how to boost the  immune system in the older population. With our rapidly ageing population, they feel that research in immune ageing has an important role to play in contributing towards maintaining the health of older people in future, and is therefore in the public interest.​​
