History & Organisation

We were founded in 1986 by Liz Mckeon who campaigned for pensioners to have a voice in their own affairs. IPF’s joint presidents are Jeremy Corbyn MP www.jeremycorbyn.org.uk who regularly attends the monthly Forum meetings and Lord Smith of Finsbury.

The office is staffed by a part-time worker and IPF volunteers under the guidance of the Chair and Secretary, Bob Collins and Dot Gibson, along with a committee elected annually at the AGM.

Funding

We are grateful to be supported and funded by Islington Council VCS & LIF & Community Chest grants who also provide means for our volunteers to produce our newsletter and to pay for a part-time worker. We are extremely grateful to Voluntary Action Islington for all their help and to our office volunteers, Myrna, David and David.

Hall for hire!

We have a community hall at our premises beside Screen on the Green, Upper Street for our meetings which can be hired by other groups from just £12 per hour. Call us on 020 7226 7687 or email at ipf@islingtonpensionersforum.org for more information.
