The National Pensioners Convention propose that every pensioner has the right to respect whilst receiving NHS or community care (which should be shared by society as a whole), the right to a £500 allowance per household to cover the high cost of fuel and should receive a state pension of £178 a week.
Local branches are requesting membership to raise matters that affect pensioners, such as a stolen travel pass which is now difficult to replace and travel expenses incurred during the loss period are not reclaimable.
Retired people are seeing their pensions, savings and investments eroded, the NHS has deteriorating standards of care for the elderly, and a large number of people are facing their final years in a country with serious financial difficulties caused by lack of ability to think ahead and prepare for their needs.
