It is administered by a Board of Trustees who are all volunteers with a keen and active interest in promoting high quality activity provision for older people. NAPA is funded by membership fees and donations with a growing income from our shop , training and consultancy services. As a pioneer in this field NAPA relies on the goodwill of its members and benefactors to financially support its work.
