The Coleford Area Partnership is represented on several organisations concerned with Health matters.

Forest of Dean Health Forum

Currently Jan Baynham is the Chairman of the Forest Health Forum, an excellent body that tries to represent the concerns of the people of the Forest of Dean on many topics.   Hillary  Bowen from Tidenham is the current Treasurer.

The Forum meets on a monthly basis, normally on the first Tuesday of each month, at Bream Community Centre. There is a speaker at most meetings and the minutes of each month’s meeting will be posted to our website for your information when received.

In the meantime we do have dedicated groups of volunteers running services such as Lydney  Dial-a-Ride etc. We also have a very high percentage of taxi firms operating in the area.
