organisation for pensioners in the UK
Across the country, pensioners are getting together to actively campaign on a range of issues from the NHS and bus services, to saving local libraries and improving housing.
Individuals or groups can be as active as they want to be - and the NPC has categories of membership for all ages.
The annual Pensioners’ Parliament is widely regarded as one of the most important activities in the pensioner movement’s calendar. There is nothing else like it in the country. Find our more on the Events page.

What do we do?
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.
Who do we represent?
The NPC represents around 1 million members in over 1,000 different organisations across the UK.
The NPC campaigns for both today's and tomorrow's pensioners, and uniting the generations in defence of the welfare state and public services is an important part of our work.
