50+ Forums are about:

  • taking action
  • influencing services
  • enhancing your life and the lives of others.

There are a number of forums across Derbyshire with more than 3,400 members. 

Your local forum is independently run by local people for local people. They meet regularly to discuss important issues, work with organisations to make improvements to services and facilities and have lots of fun too.
