Where to meet us (and have your say!) in September:
The future of BOPF: Our grant funding from Bristol City Council will come to at end in March 2018, we thank them for funding us from our inception in 1993. We will be around until at least the end of 2018 and we’re working hard on applying for funding to secure our future. Our members are vulnerable older people in Bristol and number nearly 3000 – we are very conscious that they rely on and trust our work for (and with) them and for all older people. We know service providers also need to reach and listen to older people. If you wish to get in touch with ideas or support please contact us. You can also donate.
Events in the city:
- Festival of Ideas
- Voscur’s calendar of events for the voluntary sector
- Healthwatch’s summary of news & events
