Norwich Older People's Forum

The role of the Norwich Older People's Forum (NOPF) is to ensure that the voices of older people are heard and that they influence the way in which services are planned and delivered, maintaining and improving the wellbeing of older people living in and around Norwich. We also aim to work effectively with Community Services and Health in raising the profile of older people’s needs in times when we are seeing serious reductions in public service budgets.
