The Broadland Older People’s Partnership (BOPP) will be hosting an open public meeting and EGM on Friday 19th October at Age UK Norfolk, Old Catton, focusing on the subject of coping with loss.

All are welcome to attend the meeting, which includes a panel of speakers from Nelson’s Journey, Death Café, Priscilla Bacon Lodge, Age UK and the Bereavement Office NNUH. Complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits will also be available.

The Broadland Older People's Partnership is an independent body whose membership is open to any Broadland resident aged 55 or over. Membership is free and new members are very welcome.

BOPP’s aims are to raise the profile of older people within the district, to challenge, advise and comment on the development of services used by older people.

The meeting starts with registration at 9.30am, followed by speakers from 10am. This will be followed by a question and answer session ahead of the EGM amendment at 12.30pm.

Councillor David Ward, Broadland District Council’s member champion for older people, says:

“We are pleased to support BOPP in their endeavours to raise the profile, and improve services for, older people. This meeting around loss is set to be a very informative and supportive discussion. We would urge all our older residents to get involved with the partnership and help create a strong and vibrant Broadland.”

Brian Wells, Chairman for BOPP, says:

“I look forward to seeing many of our members at the open meeting, and as always, all newcomers are welcome. The meeting looks to be a very interesting one on coping with loss - the speakers are all very well versed in their own fields and you will have time to ask questions. Refreshments will be made available on the day for all to enjoy.”
