Wirral Older People’s Parliament provides a way for older people to voice their opinions, inform the Council and influence its decisions.
Membership is by yearly donation of £12 and open to all Wirral residents over 55 years of age.
The Parliament meets four times a year in Wallasey Town Hall at 11am to 1pm on the first Friday in March, June, September and December. Wirral Older People's Parliament provides a way for older people to voice their opinions, inform the Council and influence its decisions. All members are welcome to attend.
It is governed by an Executive Committee, Chaired by Ray Johnston which also meets at least once a month to discuss current key issues and raise actions on issues affecting older people.
The issues discussed
Much of its work is undertaken through sub-committees, which currently are:
- crime and respect
- health and social care
- national issues
- local issues
There are also times when groups meet about transport, heritage, environmental and educational matters.
The Parliament, which is supported by Wirral Council, Age UK Wirral and local NHS bodies, is keen to hear from older people about issues which are of concern to them.
