The Northern Ireland Pensioners Parliament was launched in 2011 and allows older people from across Northern Ireland to have their say on the issues that matter to them. Organised by Age Sector Platform, 2014 marks the fourth year of the Parliament.
The Pensioners Parliament survey will provide the basis of discussions at each local parliament and will determine what issues are taken to the two-day Pensioners Parliament in May 2014. Even if you can't attend your local parliament, please share your views by filling in the survey.
