The role and function of Branches and Convenors is to organise events and activities, with volunteers and Convenors to provide a range of services to facilitate the active participation of older women in the management of their own health and well-being, to promote health equity between all women by targeting vulnerable and disadvantaged women, and to reduce social isolation.
