Age Scotland is the largest charity in Scotland dedicated to enabling everyone to make the most of later life.
Older people are the fastest growing group in society. Ageing is not an illness, but it can be challenging at times and, at Age Scotland, we provide vital services and support at a national and local level to inspire, enable and support older people when they need it.
We provide a platform and stand up and speak for those who have reached later life, and also protect the long-term interests of future generations.
Our vision is a Scotland where everyone can love later life.
Our ambition is to inspire people to see that they can change theirs and others later life for the better. Engage with people and enable them to change later life for the better and Support older people who are struggling as they live longer to achieve better, happier and healthier lives.
What do we do?
We work in local communities across Scotland in partnership with individual older people, older people's groups, statutory and voluntary agencies.
We work with politicians, civil servants and journalist on issues affecting older people to inform public policy and practice, influence the civic agenda and further research into ageing and older people.
Our Helpline provides life-changing information to older people in Scotland and those who care for and work with them.
