Age Concern in Wimborne

Most of the day was spent travelling to and from Wimborne. Had been invited to take part in the "challenging our futures" conference which had been arranged by Age Concern.

Very often these occasions turn into a bit of a rant with everyone talking about how hard they are done by but this occasion was very challenging as the workshops in the morning had generated some very thought provoking questions.

Underpinning the whole day was the strong feeling that, despite many people's best efforts, older people do not feel that they are adequately consulted about the services that affect them.
