Barnet Seniorsí Association (BSA) is a local voluntary organisation which has developed from the 55+Forum and the Older Peopleís Assembly. BSA works closely with Barnet Council and the NHS in order to influence policy plans and practices. BSA ensures that widely held concerns of older people are put to and kept before the authorities who take the decisions. BSA believes that by working in partnership with others it can make Barnet a better place for all and improve the quality of life for its senior citizens.
BSA holds two public events a year, the Assemblies, with speakers on topical issues, information stalls and activities suitable for over fifties. The Assemblies are free including light refreshments. They are sponsored by the Council and are open to the general public.
A social programme of activities links up with other local clubs and organisations. Currently BSA arranges coach outings and includes cultural visits to places of interest, quizzes, social gatherings, walks etc. Monthly meetings are held locally around the borough with educational or leisure activities and talks on current issues to keep members informed.
Barnet Seniorsí Association (BSA), is a voice for older residents, produces the Insider, a Free bi-monthly newsletter and a e-bulletin (email only on the first and third Monday of the month) for the benefit of the over 55ís in the London Borough of Barnet. They contain a diary of local activities, advice on health and benefits and much more.
