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. 

NPC Writes to MPs to save free TV licence for over 75s from the axe


The NPC has sent personal letters to every UK MP asking them to save the over 75s free TV licence from the axe on May 31. Although the Government has launched a consultation on whether non-payment of  the licence fee should be decriminalised,  many over 75s will still have to choose whether to heat, eat or keep their TV switched on from June 1. The NPC wants the Government to take back responsibility for funding the free licence from the BBC. Read more here.



Out now - January's Campaign!

The NPC's first bulletin of 2020 asks PM Boris Johnson to keep his pre-election promise and retain free TV licences for over 75’s. Campaign is available to read now - the colour version is here or black and white  here.
