Every year a delegation from Age Sector Platform travel to Westminster to meet with our Northern Ireland MPs and Peers in the House of Commons.

In May 2014, a motion was passed at the NI Pensioners Parliament to set up a ‘Pensioners Parliament Westminster Group.’

The aim of this group is to provide a forum to highlight the main concerns of older people in Northern Ireland to MPs on issues that the Westminster government has full or partial responsibility.

The issues being brought to the group from ASP’s Westminster Committee will come from the outcome of surveys, discussions and voting from the NI Pensioners Parliament.
