NAPA ( National Activity Providers Association)
NAPA is an umbrella organisation that connects, signposts, encourages and motivates anyone with an interest in lifestyle, well -being, life, love and laughter in the care sector.
NAPA was founded in 1997 by a small group of like-minded people who wanted to improve quality of life, through person-centred activities, for older people.It was registered as both a charity and limited company. Over time these volunteers established a membership base of around 400 activity organisers . In 2004 grants from the Big Lottery Fund and Department of Health supported the establishment of some permanent staff posts. By 2016 NAPA was self -funding and the membership stood at more than 2,500. NAPA is now seen as the `Thought Leader' in this specialist field of care and many organisations seek advice and guidance from NAPA.
