The British Polio Fellowship
The British Polio Fellowship (BPF) is a registered charity with around 9000 members. BPF was one of the first organisations of disabled people and has acted as a voice for people who have had polio for over half a century. BPF is democratically run and governed by a Management Council, the majority of whom are people who have had polio themselves. BPF provides a wide range of information and advice on rights, housing issues, equipment, self-management courses, the late effects of polio/post polio syndrome etc. The BPF is divided into nine regions and has a network of about 50 branches and groups.
