New campaign organization: Silver Voices


Silver Voices is a non-profit making company limited by guarantee (registration number 12883349). We have deliberately not applied to be a charity as we want to be free to campaign on political issues. We have no allegiance to any political party. All subscription income and donations are invested in website, marketing, campaign and office costs.

Silver Voices is a web-based membership organisation for the over sixties who want a platform for campaigning on current issues; enabling their views to be channelled to the political parties and so influence national and local policies. We have reviewed our systems to ensure we are compliant with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR): we will never provide individual data to any third party organisation. We are registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).

The more members we have the more we can influence the political debate. We already have well over 5000 members even though we are a relatively new organisation. About 200 MPs from all political parties receive our regular policy briefings and we try to work closely with other senior citizen organisations, including Age UK and Independent Age. We are now members of the Care and Support Alliance with 80 leading charities campaigning on social care and Silver Voices is also affiliated to Health Campaigns Together. We argue passionately for self-representation by senior citizens at all levels of society.
