Membership Benefits

BOPF Advisory Group
Have a voice and make a difference to Bristol local services!
The BOPF Advisory Group is an important new initiative. This sees us having a more formal role with Bristol City Council, advising on good practice around transport and other issues. It will also ensure that older people are centrally involved with the development of services. The framework for this is based on Bristol as a designated Age-Friendly City.
As part of this work we are currently developing an Older People’s Housing Plan and working closely with Bristol City Council’s City Office Department and the boards of the One-City Plan.
If you would like to get involved please contact Ian Quaife, our BOPF Development and Engagement Manager,
Receive The BOPF & BCC Newsletter. It is full of useful Covid-19 information.
Attend our Open Forum meetings and listen to interesting and informative speakers, as well as a lively debate and discussion. You will also get the opportunity to participate in consultations & surveys. Our meetings are aimed at the over 55s, but everyone, of all ages, is welcome to attend. We are an inclusive organisation. 
Attend other BOPF Events, including our BOPF Meetup Mornings and our Challenging Ageism Workshops.
