Make Your Voice Heard - Launch of Election Toolkit

The Alliance, in conjunction with our partners in Later Life Ambitions (LLA), are determined to ensure that the voice of British pensioners are heard during this General Election campaign. Though it is shaping up to be the most unpredictable poll in living history, CSPA and our partners in LLA will remain focused on campaigning to ensure that older people across the country are able to lead ambitious, fulfilling lives.

Later Life Ambitions brings together the collective voices of over a quarter of a million pensioners through the Civil Service Pensioners` Alliance, National Federation of Occupational Pensioners, and the National Association of Retired Police Officers.

We want all candidates to help change the terms of the debate to focus on the ambitions of pensioners rather than the perceived ‘costs’ to the rest of society. We therefore encourage our members to personally contact your local candidates and ask them to commit to giving older people the best chance to live fulfilling later lives.

From fair pensions to safe and sustainable care services, and from accessible housing to regular bus services to promote independence, we require bold and forward-looking action from our political leaders. With your support, we want to change the terms of the debate – to focus on the ambitions of pensioners rather than the perceived ‘costs’ to the rest of society. So we urge you to join us in calling for an aspirational and ambitious future for those in later life.

This toolkit has been created by LLA to support members to engage with local candidates in the election, including guidance on how to find out who your local candidates are, how to contact them and what to say. It has been designed to be as simple as possible, because it is important for everyone to have their voice heard, regardless of experience or ability.
