NH50Plus is a multi-cultural group and was established in 2009, specifically designed to consult with over 50s living in North Hertfordshire. We aim to share information and provide a voice for the elder generation and to work together to improve communities, services and the future for local residents.
If you are concerned about local services NH50Plus will listen to your views and concerns. We are determined to ensure the hopes and needs and opinions of over 50s in North Hertfordshire are known and responded to by those taking those decisions which impact our lives.
We are here for a friendly face for a cup of tea and a chat to help combat loneliness and social isolation.
WHAT WE DO
NH50plus holds monthly informal Forums which are social get-togethers open to all where ideas can be shared. At each Forum we invite a guest speaker to come and demonstrate a taster session or talk to us on a topic of vital interest to over 50s.
We are also here to guide you as an Active Signposting initiative, to various groups who maybe of help or interest to you
