Caribbean Social Forum
Thu 4th January 2024 - Thu 19th December 2024
Weekly sessions for Caribbean elders to gather and socialise.
The Caribbean Social Forum was started by, “the matured children” of the Windrush Generation on 29 January 2015. The Forum is open to men and women aged 50+ and they currently have over 600 registered members mainly from the Caribbean and neighbouring countries, such as Guyana. They have also attracted people from other countries who attends regularly and collectively we share and learn from each other.
The aim of the Forum is to energise/involve people together with the ‘yet-to-be’, ‘about to become’ retired and elder Caribbean community, in shaping futures that will more accurately reflect their lives. Communication is the key in leading healthier lives, reducing dementia, so having a place like the Caribbean Social Forum will help to combat isolation and allow people to bring back ‘a taste of the Caribbean’ with educational talks, dancing, music, singing, news and discussion groups, writing and much more.
