General Election 2019 - Act 4 Age

 

have your say

On 12th December 2019, voters in Northern Ireland will go to the polls to choose M Ps to represent them at Westminster. Our ageing population presents many opportunities and challenges for our society - for employers, the economy, as well as the welfare, housing, health and social care systems.

Age NI is calling on all candidates and political parties in this general election to #Act4Age19 on the issues that matter to older people today and tomorrow. Everybody should be able to enjoy the dignified, secure and fulfilling later life that we all want for ourselves and those we love.

By acting together in this election, we can make sure that our new Government makes older people’s issues a priority. See below our Priorities for the General Election 2019

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. Tackling Loneliness and building connections 

older people having opportunities to be as connected and socially engaged as they choose to be

We believe that everybody should be able to live in an age-friendly world that enables people of all ages to participate in the life of their local community, connected to each other and to opportunities in their local area, valued for the contribution they can and do make to their local community.  As a M.P. you will have a key role to play in delivering on our ambition of achieving better outcomes for older people.
