The Irish Senior Citizens’ Parliament is a representative organisation of Older People in Ireland. The Parliament is a non-partisan political organisation working to promote the views of older people in policy development and decision-making. The Parliament is run by older volunteers who are elected annually at the Annual Parliament Meeting by delegates from affiliated organisations. The ISCP currently has 200 affiliated organisations whose memberships combine to a total of 50,000 individuals. This membership means the ISCP has a genuine mandate to be the Voice of Older People in Ireland.
We identify issues of concern to Older People and we lobby at national level to achieve them. We bring the issues to the attention of the Government and all other agencies dealing with issues affecting our members.
Membership is open to organisations who wish to work with the Parliament on issues of concern to Older People and who are fully supportive of the Parliament and its ethos.
membership is also open to smaller groups, and individuals.
All affiliated organisations have an equal status, having the right to nominate 3 delegates to the Parliament, regardless of the size of the organisation.
Members of the Parliament are available to go and speak to your organisation to explain our work in areas such as pensions, transport, health, housing, nursing and home care to name but a few.
