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 500,000 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, groups or individuals 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.
Members of the Parliament are available to go and speak to your organisation or group to explain our work in areas such as pensions, transport, health, housing, nursing and home care to name but a few.
