Older People

Oxford 50+ Network

Our Communities and Neighbourhoods Team provide support to community groups that promote the inclusion and well being of Older People.

One of these groups is the Oxford 50+ Network. This is an established group providing an opportunity for older people, and those interested in provision for older people, to get involved in their local community.

The Oxford 50+ Network meets regularly, organising a programme of talks on a quarterly basis, offering a forum for older people to exchange information, raise concerns, discuss issues and find out more about services that are available to them.
The Oxford 50+ Network is also working to ensure that the views of older people are considered in the decision making process around city-wide services.
To find out more about the Oxford 50+ Network and to register your interest in becoming a member, come along to a meeting or contact us. For full details and upcoming meeting dates, visit the Oxford 50+ Network website.
