Registered Charity No: SC010100 (Scotland).
Age Scotland traces its roots back to the turmoil of the Second World War, which left many older people in Scotland without families.
Our aim to help Scotland’s people enjoy a better later life, has driven our work now for more than 70 years, and although our name may have changed during this time, our commitment to older people in Scotland remains as strong today as it has always done.
Age Scotland continues to inspire and support everyone in Scotland to make the most of later life and build communities for all ages.
We help fund, develop and mentor local groups and projects, creating places and activities that bring people together as a community. This, in turn, helps combat loneliness and isolation, and brings joy and a renewed sense of purpose into older people’s lives and support to others who need it most.
We create vital, free information on a range of issues such as community care and benefits, to help older people make informed choices in their lives, and we also provide opportunities for older people to challenge disadvantage and unfairness - ensuring that their ideas for a better Scotland reach the ears of those who need to hear them.
However, almost half of our work would not be possible without people remembering Age Scotland in their wills. When you visit your solicitor, and you have taken care of your loved ones, please consider leaving a gift in your will to Age Scotland. Let’s help everyone love later life.
