Age Scotland networks provide our member groups in different parts of Scotland with an opportunity to meet up and to share news and information about their work.
They enable members to find out more about Age Scotland and also the work of other local and national services, and they are vital for engagement. They provide a forum for members to discuss and take forward issues that are important to their groups by contributing to local and national consultations which shape services and policies concerning older people.
Age Scotland network meetings were recently held in Aberdeen, Alness, Dunoon, Dumfries, Forres, Golspie, Glasgow, Kelso, Inverclyde, Inverness, Inverurie, Irvine and Stornoway. The meetings included inputs and discussions on:
- Beating Doorstep Crime
- Benefits Advice for Older People
- Community Transport
- Engaging with Allied Health Professionals
- Reshaping Care for Older People
- Staying Active, Staying Connected
- Stroke Awareness
- Winter Warmer Preparations.
