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.
