About Us

Bristol Older People’s Forum  is a CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisation) Registered Charity number: 1162616.

We were founded in 1993, growing directly from the European Year of Older People and of Solidarity between Generations celebrated in that year. Our founders’ hopes were to raise the profile of older people, locally, nationally and internationally, and to achieve for Bristol elders the same rights, influence, security and income enjoyed by older people in most other European countries. We are currently funded by a Bristol City Council grant, and some donations from members and supporters.
