PAiL is now a part of EngAgeNet – the new national forum for older people comprising of 50+ regional forums from across England.
It was launched at the House of Lords on Monday 20th March 2017.
This is good news for older people and will help us to get our voices heard.
Since the DWP stopped funding 50+ regional forums there has been a lack of opportunities for we older people to be consulted or heard. Now that there is a new national entity – which was helped to fruition by the good offices of Lord Filkin – we have high hopes of getting the views and interests of older people better known and understood.
We are very pleased that PAiL has been invited to join and is now a part of this exciting new initiative.
