Get Involved

By members, for members

The Older People's Forum will be tailored to meet your informational and communication needs. An ongoing training scheme for volunteer community editors, recruited from the community has been established to update the website.

If you have information you would like to see on your community pages then send it to the community editor. Your editorial team will be able to decide where to put the information on the website. In this way, we hope to build up an excellent informational resource for community members.

Types of information you may wish to send are:

  • news
  • events, conferences and meetings
  • opinion
  • feature articles
  • consultation documents
  • useful links
  • resource material (books, manuals, websites, etc.)
  • anything else you feel may benefit members within your professional community.

It is helpful to have more than one editor for each community area so the time commitment required can be kept to a minimum. If you would like to become an editor for this community then please us.

Community discussion area

Your Older People's Forum discussion area is the place for you to interact with other community members and start a debate on any matter relevant to your community. It may be more beneficial to start a conversation on a subject area rather than emailing the editor with your opinion.

You are free to say what you want, but please adhere to our Acceptable Use Policy.

Your comments

Beneath many of the news, opinion and feature articles within your community, community members will soon be able to post a brief comment about the article. Again, please adhere to out Acceptable Use Policy.

Future community developments

This is just the beginning for your community. Future community enhancements are planned to open up more two-way communications channels between members and the RCN as an organisation. New developments will be advertised on the RCN website.
