Halton OPEN

Halton Older People’s Empowerment Network (Halton OPEN) was established in 2001 and has become the collective voice of people aged 50 plus who live and work in Halton. We aim to influence and encourage the development of services which can help to improve the quality of life and wellbeing of all older people in Halton.

The main areas Halton OPEN focus on are:

  • Environment
  • Finance / Benefits
  • Health & Wellbeing
  • Housing
  • Loneliness
  • Public Transport
  • Quality of Life
  • Safety in the Home

If you wish to have your say on any of the above services or there are other issues which you wish to bring to our attention, then please become a member of the Forum.


Halton OPEN liaises with decision-making bodies and attends forums and meetings in Halton which discuss and decide the services the community wants and can be delivered. Halton OPEN works on behalf of all people aged 50 plus throughout Halton and tries to ensure that your views, wants and needs are taken into consideration when decisions are made.

  • An opportunity to have your say on services in the community and to help make a difference via conferences, events, forums, surveys and meetings.
  • Information on new services, developments, benefits and progress on important issues via a newsletter at least twice a year.
  • Invitations to take part in social events, forums and focus groups which are geared around making your community a better place to live in and improving your quality of life.
