On May 5, voters in Northern Ireland will go to the polls to choose the MLAs (Members of Legislative Assembly) who will represent them in the next Assembly.
We want Northern Ireland to be a great place to grow older. It is vital that, once elected, our MLAs #Act4Age on the issues that affect older people today and tomorrow.
Make the election count. Ask candidates in your constituency to show their support for older people by becoming an Age Champion in the new NI Assembly.
We want our MLAs to become Age Champions so that they can work with us to:
- raise awareness of the issues affecting older people in the NI Assembly and with Ministers by asking questions, speaking in debates, and by being a member of the All Party Group on Ageing and Older People
- visit Age NI networks and local groups supporting older people to find out about the issues in your area and how best to support them
