We are a membership organisation established in 1986 providing a voice for the pensioners of Islington about the issues affecting them. We champion the rights and dignity of pensioners, locally, London-wide and nationally and our aim is to reduce isolation and loneliness.

INFORMATION ABOUT ISLINGTON PENSIONERS FORUM

Through our monthly Forum meeting at Islington Town Hall and by sending out our monthly newsletter we highlight issues that affect older people such as the state pension and health services. We campaign to raise awareness and make changes to save post offices, the freedom pass and anything that affects pensioners.

We send out 800 newsletters a month to 500 individual members and 300 organisations. We now aim to extend that reach online and to all generations as these issues that we highlight affect everyone. You too will be old! If you’re lucky…

Any pensioners living in Islington are welcome to join us. Just fill in the membership form and send it back to us IPF-membership-form. (PDF)
