In the run-up to General Election 2011 the Irish Senior Citizens Parliament today stepped up its campaign to “Support Older People”.
Máiréad Hayes, CEO of the Parliament outlined the five tenets of the campaign:
- Support Older Peoples Income
- Support Universal Health Care
- Support the Eradication of Elder Abuse
- Support Positive Ageing
- Support Older People in the Community
The ISCP has distributed thousands of Election Campaign sheets to its members & are encouraging them to actively engage with all candidates from all political parties to “Support Older People”. We have organised a number of meetings around the country enabling Older People to engage with the Election candidates, thus ensuring that the “Voice Of The Elderly” is heard.
