Wirral Older People’s Parliament. Championing issues of special importance to older people on Wirral.
Wirral Older People’s Parliament.
Wirral Older People’s Parliament was established in January 2007 to provide a way for older people to voice their opinions, inform the Council and influence its decisions.
Membership is free to Wirral residents and currently totals nearly 1500.
The Parliament meets four times a year in Wallasey Town Hall at 11am-1pm on the first Friday in March, June, September and December. All are welcome to attend.
It is governed by an Executive Committee, Chaired by Sandra Wall, which also meets at least once a month to discuss current key issues.
Much of its work is undertaken through sub-committees, which currently are:
- crime and respect
- disability and safety
- health and social care
- national issues (as opposed to purely Wirral 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.
