Why partner with Age Scotland
Scotland is ageing at a faster rate than the rest of the UK and our older people face ongoing challenges that must be met.
Imagine feeling all alone with no one to talk to, day after day. Imagine having no joy in your life, no sense of purpose, spending the majority of your time indoors alone, the TV or a pet your only form of company. That is the sad reality for thousands of older people in Scotland. Recent research highlighted that 10% of people over 50, an estimated 218,000 in Scotland, feel lonely most or all of the time. It is heart-breaking to think that many of those older people will also face the current cost of living crisis alone, not knowing who to turn to for support.
With rising prices having catastrophic consequences for older people in later life on low and fixed incomes, the advice our helpline offers including benefits checks has never been more important and makes a real difference to the lives of older people. Our friendship line offers older people a weekly call, to check how they are and give them a chance for a blether. For many older people it might be the only person they have spoken to that week. Our community work supports local grassroots older people’s groups to thrive.
By working together in partnership to raise vital funds and awareness, we can be there for those who need us most, leading the change we want to see in the lives of older people across Scotland.
