CAMPAIGN TO DEFEND UNIVERSAL PENSIONER BENEFITS SUCH AS THE BUS PASS AND WINTER FUEL ALLOWANCE
SIGN OUR PETITION “Hands off universal pensioner benefits” HERE
We the undersigned recognise the serious problem of fuel poverty in this country amongst older people faced with rising energy bills, believe that the excess winter death rate amongst pensioners is a national scandal and call on the government to reverse its callous decision to cut the winter fuel allowance, and instead increase the allowance to £500 for every pensioner household.

The NPC’s new campaign for 2012 is entitled: Fair Care. The campaign will raise the arguments in favour of a National Care Service funded through general taxation, like the NHS. The campaign will also call for improved standards, better training and pay for care staff and the introduction of a Dignity Code to give rights to all older people in receipt of care.
Sign the petition in support of the Dignity Code at: http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/27050.
