Age Sector Platform has a number of ‘Campaign Committees’ that have been working over the past few years to follow up on the motions passed at the Pensioners Parliament. These committees, which are part of Age Sector Platform’s structure, work behind the scenes planning campaigns, raising awareness of particular issues and lobbying relevant bodies and public representatives to ensure that the issues of importance to older people in Northern Ireland are being addressed.

Each committee is made up of older people from across Northern Ireland who are members of Age Sector Platform and have an interest in a particular topic.

Each committee focuses on a specific area including:

  • Making End Meet (Energy Prices, Food Prices, Income)
  • OFMdFM Issues (Ageing Strategy, Age Discrimination Legislation)
  • Health and Social Care
  • Fear of Crime
  • Westminster Issues (Pensions, Benefits)
