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.
