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.

Shoes for your Health and Safety
Wednesday 25th April St Peter's Church Notting Hill 2-4pm 
Why are good shoes important?
24,000 over-65s in the UK fall over at home every year because of poorly fitting footwear. Accidents can happen so easily, but many falls can be avoided by wearing correctly fitted, supportive footwear. Arthritis can affect the joints in the feet causing pain, including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. For arthritis suffers, the key consideration when choosing shoes is comfort. 

We have been funded by:
Laura Radley and Joyce Sack, Trustee and Chair of the Kensington and Chelsea Forum for Older Residents at the Buckingham Palace Garden Party June 2017
