Aims & Objectives

The aim of the GLPA is to campaign to defend and advance the interests of pensioners by all means possible.
Our interests include the level of the State Pension, standards in the National Health Service, Community Care and Social Services, and free travel for pensioners. We are opposed to any form of means testing, demanding that older people should enjoy their later years with justice and dignity.
In all our activities, we work to achieve solidarity between generations, and particularly with trade unionists.
We publish a monthly campaigning newsletter, The Greater London Pensioner, and produce a wide range of leaflets to inform and encourage action.
We lead delegations and present petitions to Parliament, Government Ministers, and the Greater London Authority. We hold regular lobbies of MPs at the House of Commons. Public meetings and conferences are organised.
Membership of the GLPA is open to all organisations and retired people in Greater London. Individuals under sixty can become Associate Members. Details of affiliation fees and an application form are published in our newsletter.
Monthly delegate meetings are held at 1:30pm on the last Friday of the month (except December) in the Council Chamber at Camden Town Hall opposite St. Pancras Station. Observers are always welcome.
The GLPA is part funded by the London Trust. It also receives occasional grants from other organisations for specific activities.
The GLPA operates an equal opportunities policy to ensure it represents and includes all sections of the community.
