The Northern Ireland Pensioners Parliament was established in 2011 to engage with older people from across Northern Ireland, enable them to have their say on the issues that matter to them and to provide a basis for bringing about positive change to older people’s lives.


Organised by Age Sector Platform (ASP), the parliament aims to provide a bottom-up and democratic approach to tackling the issues of concern for older people. We know from working with our forums and networks that older people for many years have hoped for a more formal vehicle to express their concerns so that those in power could be better informed to do something to tackle them.
