OPAAL is the Older People's Advocacy Alliance, a national organisation which provides the strategic lead on independent advocacy for older people. Independent advocacy for older people doesn't get enough recognition - and its users don't get to tell their stories often enough.

We've set up VOPA - Voices for Older People's Advocacy - to change that. We want to see more older people speaking up, and more people using advocacy to do so. Have a look and see what you can find out.
