CAMPAIGNING NOW TO SECURE YOUR FUTURE
WHO ARE WE?
The Scottish Pensioners’ Forum was set up in 1992 as an umbrella organisation for groups and individuals working and campaigning for a better deal for older people.
The Forum was initiated by the STUC Pensioners Committee as a "national" body, to allow pensioners to speak on behalf of pensioners and was set up after discussion with bodies such as Help the Aged, Age Concern and the Scottish Old Age Pensions Association (now Scottish Pensions Association).
The Forum is a non profit making organisation and is managed by an Executive Committee, elected each year at the Annual Conference. All Members of the Committee give their time voluntarily and come from areas such as Regional Elderly Forums; Churches; Trades Unions; Ethnic Minorities and Individual members.
The Forum currently employs a part time Administrator/Development Worker.
There are currently four categories of membership
- Individual pensioners
- Other individuals (supporters not yet of pensionable age)
- Local Forums
