We aim to ensure that government policy improves the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care of people affected by osteoporosis and broken bones.

All Party Parliamentary Osteoporosis Group (APPOG)

The All-Party Parliamentary Osteoporosis Group* (APPOG) is an informal parliamentary group made up of Westminster MPs and Peers from across the political spectrum with an interest in osteoporosis.

Its purpose is to inform and engage parliamentarians in the challenges osteoporosis poses to their constituents and the NHS as a whole. The Group meets twice a year, with presentations and speeches from a variety of parliamentarians, government ministers, clincians and other experts.

*The All Party Parliamentary Osteoporosis Group is not a parliamentary select committee and has not been appointed by the House of Commons. The House of Commons does not take responsibility for the content of this website.

The Falls and Fractures Alliance

The Royal Osteoporosis Society (formerly National Osteoporosis Society) and Age UK established a Falls and Fractures Alliance (FFA) in England with the aim of bringing together organisations to focus on preventing falls and fractures, and particularly to reduce the rate of hospital admission for hip fractures and falls-related injuries among older people.

The FFA is a network of organisations with an interest in the falls and fractures agenda.

The Royal Osteoporosis Society provides the Secretariat to the FFA and its working group and engages with FFA Members on news, developments, and initiatives in the sector.
