Forum Central is a member-led network. Our member organisations are vital to the work we do, and we believe in promoting our members’ work as well as bringing people together, sharing information, and creating networking opportunities.

Forum Central is a partnership of two registered charities; Volition (who have specialist workstreams in mental health, physical and sensory impairment and learning disabilities) and Leeds Older People’s Forum (who specialise in embedding the voices of older people across the sector). When an organisation becomes a member of one the partner charities, they automatically become a Forum Central member.

Who can join?
