Older People's Reference Group

John Barry

What were your involvements before NDA?

Elected member and Secretary of the Brighton & Hove Older People’s Council

 Why did you join the OPRG?

I am interested in looking at the broader picture regarding older people and the challenges they face, and particularly interested in government policy and in research into improving older people’s lives.

What has been the most rewarding part of being a member of the OPRG?

Meeting the members of the OPRG group. I have joined only recently, so there has been limited opportunity to become involved with any of the projects.

What would you like to see the NDA achieve?

To see respect for the needs of older people given proper recognition everywhere: in government, in local communities and in families.
