Open meetings for Islington pensioners on the 3rd Thursday,10.15am-noon in the Islington Town Hall, Upper St, N1. Membership is free to anyone over 55 who lives or works in Islington.
We are a membership organisation established in 1986 providing voice for the pensioners of Islington about the issues affecting them.
We champion the rights and dignity of pensioners, locally, London-wide and nationally and our aim is to reduce isolation and loneliness.
Through our monthly Forum meeting at Islington Town Hall and by sending out our monthly newsletter we highlight issues that affect older people such as the state pension and health services.
We campaign to raise awareness and make changes to save post offices, the freedom pass and anything that affects pensioners.
We send out 800 newsletters a month to 500 individual members and 300 organisations. We now aim to extend that reach online and to all generations as these issues that we highlight affect everyone. You too will be old. If you’re lucky!
