Your Assembly - Together we can make a difference – Our Voice Our Community
The Older People's Assembly is part of a thriving movement of older peoples' organisations throughout the UK with a common aim to provide a voice for the Older Community to ensure that the needs and wishes of an ageing society are heard and met.
The OPA, established in 2007, strives to achieve a proactive involvement at local and national level with ‘the decision makers’, to inform and consult on behalf of its members and to provide a public platform for you to be heard.
As an Assembly of volunteer residents this group addresses a wide range of subjects relating to the Service Providers of Southend, Transport, Social Care, Health, Leisure, Housing, Social Inclusion, Environmental Issues and much more....
