Our priorities

Our priorities

Age Sector Platform’s campaign priorities are determined by the findings of the Northern Ireland Pensioners Parliament.

The parliament is the mechanism through which the biggest concerns of pensioners in Northern Ireland are identified.  Age Sector Platform’s Campaign Committees then work behind the scenes planning campaigns, raising awareness of particular issues and lobbying to ensure that the issues of importance to older people in Northern Ireland are being addressed.

Our current priority areas are:

  • Making ends meet (energy prices, food prices, income)
  • Health and social care (impact of Transforming Your Care)
  • Fear of crime (Feel Safe project)
  • Pensions and benefits
  • Active Ageing Strategy
  • Age discrimination legislation (goods, facilities and services)
