Horsham District Older Peoples Forum

The Horsham District Older Peoples Forum (HDOPF) is a free to join, non political, voluntary body that acts as the 'ears and voice' for issues of people aged 60 and over who reside in the Horsham District Council area. It also exists to be a consultative group for anyone seeking the views of older people in the district on particular topics or schemes that may affect older people such as from Horsham District Council (HDC) and West Sussex County Council (WSCC).
