The  campaigning 
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. 

'A Pensioners' Manifesto

The National Pensioners Convention have released their manifesto.

At the General Election, the NPC will call on all candidates to support a manifesto that puts the concerns of today’s and tomorrow’s pensioners at the heart of the political process.

The manifesto can be found here.


Office for National Statistics Excess Winter mortality figure release


Date: Wednesday 27th November 2019

The NPC have received confirmation from the Office for National Statistics that the Excess Winter mortality release is due for publication on the 27th of November.


Previous information has been released by the ONS on the weblink below


Lobby of Parliament

As of yet, no date has been set for the annual lobby of Parliament. This was as a result of Parliament not sitting and a lack of focus on domestic policy resulting from Brexit uncertainties. When we have details for the NPC lobby, we will endeavour to let you and our affiliates know the arrangements at the earliest possible occasion.

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.
