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 housing, health, social care, transport, leisure facilities, safety and community services for the older residents of the Royal Borough. We also work to alleviate social isolation. We have a record since our inception in 1996 of helping older residents gain the confidence to influence decision-making processes. Our diverse membership represents the entire Borough and currently stands at over 2,000 members.

We have enormous recognition in the Borough and have worked in partnership with the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and NHS Kensington and Chelsea. We are proud recipients of the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service.

donate to enable us to continue our work in bringing vital information on important issues including health and wellbeing, security, housing, legal and financial matters to the older residents of the Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and other boroughs. We hold over 100 events a year to communicate this information to our members which also helps to reduce social isolation in those who are disabled and house-bound. Additionally, we hold many exciting outings including coach trips, cruise parties/lunches, and exclusive museum tours.
