Our participation groups are a satellite link of Halton OPEN which gives older people the opportunity to have their say about the services that are delivered in Halton.

Two older ladiesThese groups allow more older people to feed their views into the planning process and join in with social activities. There is a wider group of older people to consult with on local issues.

The groups have a dual purpose as isolated older people have the opportunity to get involved, get out of their home, meet new people and become re-engaged with their community. Many arts and craft activities take place, speakers are invited in from other organisations.

Currently there are 5 groups meeting monthly.
