The National Pensioners Convention ('NPC') is the principal organisation representing pensioners in the United Kingdom. It is made up of around 1,000 bodies representing 1.5 million members, organised into federal regional units.

Its objective is "to promote the welfare and interests of all pensioners, as a way of securing dignity, respect and financial security in retirement".

The NPC was founded by former Transport and General Workers' Union trade union leader, Jack Jones in 1979. He served as its President until 2001, when he was succeeded by Rodney Bickerstaffe, who had been general secretary of UNISON. Frank Cooper is the current President, with Neil Duncan-Jordan as National Officer.
