Age needs one voice. Now it has:
Age Scotland is the new force combining Age Concern Scotland and
Help the Aged. Age Scotland is a member of the Age UK family.
Join us in making a real difference to older people across Scotland.
Not every older person is lonely, and for many, retirement allows more time to enjoy friendships and family life. However isolation makes later life miserable for a significant minority and, with more of us expected to live longer alone in future, it's critical that its causes are tackled now. These include: poor neighbourhood design, the effects of severe winter weather, and lack of access to suitable transport.
Join Age Scotland in campaigning to ensure that every older person in Scotland can have a fulfilling social life.

Last year Age Scotland campaigned to end the artificial divide between health and social care services that, too often, fail to adequately meet their needs. Now the Charity is working to ensure Scottish Government legislation to achieve this meets older people's needs in full.
