Thank you for visiting the CSPA Northern Ireland Branch Website. 


Please note we will be updating our website over the next few months so hopefully members should find it a more useful tool.  

NI members should be aware that they can also access the National CSPA website via the following link.

www.cspa.co.uk


CSPA Members should be aware that as well as being able to access a range of benefits the CSPA is also involved in a wide range of campaigns that support and preserve the rights of older people. 


Details of membership of the NI Branch Committee are included in a separate page.  Meetings are currently held via zoom, though as soon as it is safe to commence face to face meeting we hope to do so. If any members wish to become more actively involved in our Committee or any of our campaigns please contact the Brach Secretary Jim Lilley at [email protected] 

or phone him 028 90658513. 


During the current Covid-19 crisis lockdown the office in Belfast that collects our post is closed. If you have sent any post there (our freepost address) please contact the Membership Secretary Roisin Lilley on 028 90658513.


 Annual Membership Renewal

Members who do not pay directly from their Civil Service pension or by Standing Order would normally have received a letter at the start of the new year advising them that their annual subscription was due (£15 single membership). Unfortunately, as stated above, the office where our mail is normally collected, and issued from, is closed due the current lockdown. Whilst we had delayed issuing letters because of this, renewal letters were issued to annual members seeking payment of their annual subscription. Members are reminded that if Travel Insurance via CSPA is invalidated if their CSPA membership subscription is not up to date. If for any reason you did not receive one please contact the Membership Secretary, Roisin Lilley using the details above or below: 

Membership Secretary at the following e mail

or phoning her at the number above.


If members have queries on matters apart from their membership please contact the Hon. Sec. Jim Lilley on 028-90658503 or at the following e mail address: [email protected]  

Covid 19

Although many of the coronavirus restrictions have eased, some regulations remain in place to help stop the spread of Covid -19. The public are advised to continue to protect themselves and others by following public health advice. 

 The current regulations are available on the Department of Health Website.


By now, most of our members should have received both vaccinations. Indeed many of your family and friends will have received their first vaccination jab. Whilst this will hopefully bring some relief we would urge you to continue to follow the health advice still in place. 

We understand that some members may be feeling concerned. The situation is very changeable and we advise all members, their family and friends, to keep themselves informed by listening to the news and checking the regularly updated Government and NHS guidance, which can be found at these links:

It is most important to look after your health and those around you. The basic way you can do this is to wash your hands regularly, avoid touching your face, especially your mouth, nose or eyes and if you cough or sneeze cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or with your elbow. Throw the tissue away in a bin immediately.



Following government advice CSPA Head Office will be closed once again during the latest lockdown

However, a considerably reduced service will be in operation, e.g.; no newsletters or circulars will be issued and application forms for membership will not be processed (not an exhaustive list).
