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.

Henriette has been continuing her studies with Professor Ieuan Jones of the Royal College of Music in London and at Cambridge University, where she won all three Instrumental Scholarships as well as a University Choral Scholarship. An award for young professional musicians from the London Philharmonia Orchestra's ‘Martin Musical Scholarship Fund’ allowed her to take the plunge and embark on a full-time harp performance course at the Royal College of Music in London.
