BCOP started life as ‘Birmingham Council for Old People’ in 1946.  It was established by a group of concerned local people who realized that older people needed better care and support than what was available at the time.  World War 2 had destroyed many houses in Birmingham which further compounded the issues around providing medical and lifestyle support for older people.

For the last 75 years, BCOP has provided high quality care for older people in Birmingham – our pioneering spirit ensures the care we offer has evolved and adapted to reflect the changing needs of the community.
