As the new Chair of Shropshire Seniors I would firstly like to publically thank all the Trustees for their support. I would also like to thank the office staff for going over and above to assist me in my new role.
I believe Shropshire Seniors is more important today than when it was first founded some ten years ago. The reason being there are a great many changes taking place particularly in Adult Social Care. None of us like change but unfortunately financial constraints necessitate what is happening.
We are here to listen to your concerns and it is our remit to put these concerns to the people responsible for the changes and attempt to get the best possible outcome for Shropshire Seniors.
We have Forums in Albrighton, Bridgnorth, Market Drayton, Shrewsbury and Wem & Whitchurch. Everyone is welcome to go along to one of the meetings. Forums usually invite speakers on various subjects. It is also an opportunity for you to speak about your concerns and be listened to. We also try to combat loneliness and isolation by hosting other events around the county.
I would encourage you to go along to one of our meetings to see what we are all about. You will receive a warm welcome. Together we can make a difference.
I look forward to hearing from you.
