Pensioners' Manifesto Update
We have now finalised a Pensioners' manifesto with our Later Life Ambitions partners the Civil Service Pensioners Alliance, the National Association of Retired Police Officers, and with the help of our adviser, Connect Plus.
This manifesto sets out our collective vision for a better future not just for our members, but for the 11 million people in later life throughout the UK.
Together we plan to launch the manifesto at a parliamentary event in Westminster on Tuesday 21st November 2023.
Watch out for further updates on this news page.

Our Tree For Life
We are delighted that a tree has been planted in our name as part of the Trees For Life rewilding charity scheme in Scotland.
As a new client of Adecco, one of the worlds largest HR and staffing providers, NFOP had a tree planted in the Caledonian Forest - Scottish Highlands in August 23 as part of the Adecco sustainability pledge and partnership with Trees For Life.
Trees for Life plants in remote areas best suited to help the return of the Caledonian Forest, such as on their conservation estate, Dundreggan, near Loch Ness, and Glen Affric National Nature Reserve. Our tree will begin as a sapling grown from locally collected seed and will be one of a number of species planted such as Scots pine, Willow, Birch, Rowan, Hazel, Holly and Bird Cherry. Our sapling will help transform open hillsides into healthy young woodland able to support the local ecosystem and wildlife. Once the trees reach maturity, natural regeneration will go on to create wild forests that will be enjoyed by and help sustain generations to come.

York Group Step Back In Time...
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be poor in Victorian England, before the days of a welfare system? Those without the means to support themselves often ended up in the workhouse or even prison.
The York 354 group recently paid a visit to the Ripon Museums to discover for themselves the fascinating history and stories of just how grim Victorian life in Yorkshire and beyond could be. Photo courtesy of Shelagh Kenny.
