Our mission is to make Scotland the best place in the world to grow older. Our wonderful volunteers play a vital role in that.

Volunteers complement the work of our employees, enabling us to reach older people and do more on their behalf. We also believe that volunteers should find their experience rewarding; by learning new skills or developing existing ones, meeting new people and making a difference to Scotland’s older people.
