Charter lays out rights for OAPs.
The National Pensioners' Convention has drawn up a charter which they claim will improve elderly peoples' lives.
The charter, drawn up this week, urged the government to reintroduce the link between earnings and pensions.
It also calls for retaining the state pensions by strengthening the National Insurance system and keeping the same retirement age.
John Parks, chairman of the Coventry Pensioners' Convention, welcomed the news of the charter, saying it was good news for older people.
He said: "This will make a tremendous difference because pensioners would be able to live without the fear of poverty hanging over their heads.
"We plan to press for support at a local, regional and national level.
"We have been fighting for these things for a long, long time and will continue to do so."
