NARPO Conference 2019
The 2019 NARPO conference took place on Friday 6th September in Southport. The theme for this year’s conference was 100 years of safeguarding members’ rights, wellbeing and pensions.
We were joined by a number of fantastic speakers including Holly Lynch MP, whose father is a retired Police Officer, Beth Sidwell from our Parliamentary Advisors, Emma Shakespeare, Head of Wellbeing at Police Mutual, Chief Constable Andy Rhodes, National Police Wellbeing Programme, and Paul Aspinall from The Police Federation amongst others.
Pensions for Life Campaign Update
Following the results of the Drop-in Reception back in May, The NARPO National Executive Committee agreed that we should take legal advice to ascertain if there was a claim in law to challenge the archaic Regulation surrounding this matter.
As a result, we have consulted with solicitors and a leading Human Rights Barrister who is of the opinion that we have a sound case to pursue the matter under the Human Rights Act and its various Articles
