Meeting about a new group to campaign for older people in Leeds

Calling all Leeds Older People!

Are you interested in being part of a vibrant group campaigning for older people’s rights? Do you want to influence positive change locally and nationally?

Bramley Elderly Action is supporting the establishment of a Leeds group of the National Pensioners Convention (NPC), which campaigns on key issues affecting older people across Britain through a federation of over 100 local groups.

If you may be interested in being part of a newly formed Leeds NPC group, come and join us:

10.30–12.00, Friday 5 February, at Leeds Civic Hall (Rooms 6 & 7)
Speakers include Dot Gibson, General Secretary of the NPC

Please also join us after the meeting at Leeds City Museum Cafe, for lunch and informal discussion.

To give us an idea of numbers please let us know at npcleeds@gmail.com or phone Lee Ingham at Bramley Elderly Action on 0113 236 1644.

If you may be interested in being involved but unable to get to the meeting, please let us know and we will keep you informed.

The NPC’s main objective is to promote the welfare and interests of all pensioners, as a way of securing dignity, respect and financial security in retirement.

The NPC organises rallies and lobbies of MPs, leads delegations to parliament and makes submissions to government on policies affecting older people. Current campaigns include: single tier state pension; universal pensioner benefits; fair care; fuel poverty; end frozen pensions; dignity code; save our buses; generations united; public toilets, and many more!
