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 and there are more of us than ever before.

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 ensure that older people's ideas for a better Scotland reach the ears of those who need to hear them, and also protect the long-term interests of future generations.

Together, we can help everyone make the most of later life.

Our Vision: A Scotland where everyone can love later life

Our vision is ambitious. It won't be easy to get there, and it won't be a quick journey, but we believe it's how things should be for older people and we work every day to get closer to it.

Our Mission: To help Scotland's people enjoy a better later life

Our mission is the practical manifestation of our vision. It's what we focus on to make a real difference for older people that brings us one step closer to that vision.

Our Ambition:

  • Inspire people to see that they can change their own and others' later life for the better.
  • Engage with people and enable them to change later life for the better.
  • Support older people who are struggling as they live longer to achieve better, happier, healthier lives.
