Barnet Seniors' Association (BSA) is focused on all older residents of the London Borough of Barnet. It is a non-political, local voluntary organisation which has no religious affiliations and exists to encourage well-being and staying active and independent. It works in tandem with the NHS, the council and local voluntary organisations. There is currently no charge for membership or the services provided by BSA.
The BSA aims to reach residents of the London borough of Barnet over 55. It produces a full-colour free newsletter, Insider, every 2-3 months which is delivered by volunteer Street Champions to 10,000 homes and sent on-line to voluntary organisations and care homes. It contains news on keeping well, staying safe and encourages readers to remain active in two pages of classes and courses (many of them free) - ranging from painting, table tennis, dancing, games, exercising, IT, knitting and even memories over coffee.
And the BSA organises two free annual Assemblies, each with a theme to appeal to older adults, with refreshments and finger food, entertainment, activity, supported by stalls run by voluntary organisations providing information of interest to the audience. These assemblies are well attended and are organised in liaison with BSA's partners.
