Community Connecting logoThe Age Scotland Community Connecting Service aims to work with older people across Scotland to help make contact with community services that offer friendship, social activities, health and fitness groups and events. The service aims to help you identify what is available locally, and can assist you to access these services by making contact on your behalf and by helping identify community transport options to get you to and from the service, where available.

This service is facilitated by volunteers who will keep in touch to provide reassurance and an opportunity to discuss any other services which may be available.

The Age Scotland Community Connecting service aims to tackle social isolation and loneliness across Scotland by ensuring that details of what is available locally can be requested by contacting the Age Scotland Helpline, but also through useful guides which are available by request or as PDF files as listed at the bottom of this page.

If you’re part of an organisation and would like us to refer potential new members to your group or service, please complete this form and return to
