Campaign and influence policy

Duane Farrell

Age NI educates, campaigns and lobbies the NI Executive, the NI Assembly and Government Authorities to ensure that older people’s issues are represented at the highest level.

Our policy team is challenging government to tackle the barriers of poverty and discrimination, and to improve health & social care provision. Successful campaigns have included working with our partners in the age sector to secure 80,000 additional fuel payments (worth £12.5 million) for older people and lobbying for an Older People’s Commissioner, appointed in 2011.
