Supporting the NPC Pensioners'
Each year the National Pensioners Convention holds a Pensioners' Parliament. This event brings people together for debating, networking, seminars and most importantly, it helps to build a united pensioners' movement.
We publish information on the history of the state pension, alongside pamphlets of our Jack Jones Lectures.
All our Jack Jones pamphlets are available for £1. The "Paupers Progress" by Joe Harris is avaliable for £2. Please send payment to NPEWC, Marchmont Community Centre, 62 Marchmont Street, London, WC1N 1AB.
The NPEWC supports and arranges training courses for older people in computer
and IT skills
We hold seminars on issues such as pensions, social care
and age discrimination
