Joanna Cherry MP Visits Age Scotland

 

 

It was great to visit Age Scotland this morning to find out how they support older people in Scotland from their HQ in Edinburgh South West.

 

Their free helpline offers information, friendship and advice on 0800 12 44 222 to older people and their families.

 

Age Scotland is the leading charity representing older people in Scotland and supporting their rights and interests.

 

Their vision is a Scotland where everyone can love later life.

 

"Everyone, whatever our age, has a stake in ensuring that later lives are rewarding, because this is the future each of us faces. We not only aspire to this but can contribute to achieving it. We believe life is for living, and everyone should have the opportunity to live happily and well, for as long as they can.

 

Mission: Our mission is to inspire, involve and empower older people in Scotland, and influence others, so that people in Scotland enjoy better later lives.

 

We will inspire older people by encouraging them to realise the opportunities and overcome the challenges of later life.

 

We will involve older people by connecting and engaging with them through our networks, and enabling them to participate in groups and their communities.

 

We will empower older people by helping them obtain valuable and accessible information and advice to help them understand their rights, make informed choices and access appropriate support.

 

We will influence others by promoting understanding of older people's rights and interests, and shape and build support for reforms to the law, policy and practice."
