About Us

MSOPC Committee 2016
Founded in 2004, Mid Sussex Older People’s Council (MSOPC) is an independent local charity, run by older people, for the benefit of Mid Sussex older people.  MSOPC is managed and run by a Board of six Trustees and a Management Committee of ten, all of whom are volunteers and have a strong connection with other voluntary and statutory organisations working with local older people. We work with these organisations to ensure that the interests of older people across Mid Sussex are well served.

The Charity contracts with a Development Officer and other professional consultants in order to deliver its information network, public events and representations effectively. It has MSOPC Friends who assist the Trustees and Management Committee with specific activities on a voluntary basis. Some of these individuals may also hold a position in another organisation, for example as Secretary to a local older people’s club. The number of our supporters has risen from a couple of dozen or so to over 1,100 and numbers are continuing to grow steadily.
