We consist of Scottish groups of 1950s born women campaigning against state pension injustices under the umbrella of WASPI Campaign 2018. We are run by volunteers who have also been affected and are campaigning about the injustice 50s born women are facing due to the way their State Pension Age was changed. We lobby at local, Scottish and UK level via our MPs. In addition we feed into the Cross Party Group at Holyrood (CPG) and the All Party Political Group (APPG) at Westminster on the the issues that affect 50s born women due to the rise to State Pension Age.
We call on the Government to agree fair and fast compensation for all women affected by the lack of notice regarding the State Pension age increases (1995 and 2011 Pensions Acts) to reflect their financial losses, the sustained damage to their mental health and well-being, and the additional impacts. We also call for the Government to act on the PHSO findings now to prevent any longer-term damage to WASPI women. (adopted 09.12.2021)
