Welcome to the Bradford Opportunity Area
The Bradford Opportunity Area (BOA) was launched by the government in 2017 with an aim to understand and tackle the various challenges and barriers children and young people faced in the district. The Bradford Opportunity Area has been implementing a wide range of interventions, based on evidence and best practice, to help change the life course of these children and young people for the better.
