Services

In 2009, Age Concern Scotland and Help the Aged joined together to form a single new charity, Age Scotland, dedicated to improving the lives of older people.

Fieldwork

The activities of Age Scotland's fieldwork service encompasses the functions of development and training, two key aspects of the organisation's work in local communities.

The activities of development officers are wide ranging and include:

  • raising awareness of the issues affecting older people
  • supporting and assisting member groups to achieve their own aims
  • supporting local groups who provide practical services direct to older people
  • working in partnership with voluntary and statutory organisations to ensure that older people directly influence the planning and quality of services

Information

  • Information for older people and those who work with them
  • Factsheets covering a range of topics on Income, Legal Issues, Community Care and Housing, for example, Moving into Residential Care, Using Income as Capital

Factsheets are available free to individuals - organisations can subscribe to obtain a complete set of factsheets which are regularly kept up to date.

Campaigns

Age Scotland campaigns throughout Parliament to improve the quality, scale and relevance of services for older people.
