Northern Ireland Pensioners Parliament

The Northern Ireland Pensioners Parliament was launched in 2011 and allows older people from across Northern Ireland to have their say on the issues that matter to them. Organised by Age Sector Platform, 2014 marks the fourth year of the Parliament.
The Pensioners Parliament survey has provided the basis of discussions at each local parliament and determined the issues taken to the two-day Pensioners Parliament in May 2014. Over 1,100 people completed the 2014 survey.
