Hands Off

‘Hands Off’ is a UK-wide campaign defending the need for universal pensioner benefits, including:

  • Winter Fuel Payment
  • Bus Pass
  • TV Licence
  • Free Prescriptions

Following the 2015 General Election, Age Sector Platform will continue the 'Hands Off' campaign in Northern Ireland for the protection of the bus pass and free prescriptions for older people - benefits which are the responsibility of the NI Assembly.  The next NI Assembly election will take place in May 2016.

Anyone who would like to continue supporting the campaign is encouraged to collect signatures for the campaign petition, and email their local MLA.

Visit the ‘Hands Off’ website for more information or to download the petition.

If you would like a batch of paper petitions and promotional fliers posted to you, contact Age Sector Platform on 028 9031 2089 or email info@agesectorplatform.org.
