Act4Age - Listen

Act4AgeOn Thursday 2 March 2017, 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 #Act4Age and deliver a better future for us all as we age.

We want our MLAs to be age champions in the NI Assembly, working 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

#Act4Age: Our Priorities For Action

  1. Staying well, feeling good
    Older people enjoying good health for longer, remaining as independent as possible and receiving the best care

  2. Tackling pensioner poverty
    Older people having enough money to live comfortably and participate fully in society

  3. Equal and engaged citizens
    Older people valued for their contribution and experience, their rights and dignity respected and protected

  4. Ageing at the heart of government policy and action
    Older people having their voices heard, ensuring government departments work together to deliver better outcomes for older people now and in the future
