The independent voice for the over 55s in Bristol

The Bristol Older People’s Forum (BOPF) was founded in 1993 and became a Charitable Incorporated Organisation in 2015. It is member-led with around 2700 members. BOPF promotes the rights of older people in the city of Bristol by informing, campaigning, and working with key local, regional and national partners.

BOPF’s aim is that every older person in the city is an equal, valued, participating member of the community who can influence the decisions which affect their lives.

Our Manifesto sets out the priorities in achieving our aim through influencing key providers and decision makers in the city. It outlines how Bristol must recognise diversity and address inequality to become a great place to grow old for everyone.

We works in partnership with other organisations to recognise diversity and address inequality and discrimination, so Bristol can become a great Age Friendly City for everyone
