Tuesday 6 October
In the week that celebrated International Older Peoples’ Day, in conjunction with the Enfield Older People Partnership Board, we staged our first Zoom webinar, on changes that will affect the lives of older people in Enfield. This is a recording of the event. (By the way, by playing this YouTube video, you are accepting YouTube cookies!)
The speakers were:
- Jan Shortt, General Secretary of the National Pensioners Convention, the country’s largest campaigning organisation for pensioners. She talked about pensions and the threat to the triple lock:
- Deborah McBeal, Director of Integration at Enfield at the North Central London Clinical Commissioning Group.
- Bindi Nagra, Director of Health & Adult Social Care, on the changes affecting social care in the borough.
All the speakers answered questions from the large on-line audience, mostly after all the talks.
The following links are to the speakers’ notes and slide shows. They are all in PDF format.
