Age Scotland's Community Development team works in partnership with our member groups, Regional Ambassadors, and voluntary and statutory organisations across the country to make Scotland’s communities better places for older people.
Our job is to support the development of strong and vibrant older people's groups and organisations in Scotland by:
- Providing information, advice, resources and support to assist Age Scotland member groups with the delivery and development of their services and activities
- Organising regional network meetings, policy engagement meetings and a national conference. These events bring Age Scotland members together to make connections, share experiences and learning, and to engage with and influence local and national decisions and services to better meet their needs
- Promoting the important work of Age Scotland’s member groups, celebrating success and sharing good ideas and practice through e-news bulletins, Advantage magazine, the Age Scotland Awards and in Network meetings
- Identifying opportunities and supporting communities to develop new initiatives which encourage health and well-being and tackle loneliness and isolation including Men’s Sheds, Walking Football and Intergenerational projects.
