York 50+ Assembly
York Older People's Assembly members are all over 50 and member organisations represent the main groups working with older people in York. Our aim is to raise awareness of policy issues affecting our lives, to be well represented on the boards of the Council, Hospital Trust and Primary Care Trust through our Champions, to sit on policy-making committees, and to speak out in the press and media on local and national issues of concern to older people. We debate issues at public meetings, communicate through our quarterly newsletter, organise information fairs, and co-ordinate the York 50+ Festival in which over 7,000 people participate annually. We are part of the national initiative, Better Government for Older People, and we are working towards a sea-change in the public image of older people - from dependency to resourcefulness - which will benefit the entire community over the years to come. You are invited to join YOPA if you are over 50 and live within the City of York Council boundary. Membership is free.
