Policy and Research

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to make the most of later life. Policy and Research is an important part of Age Scotland’s work because it has the power to transform older peoples’ lives for the better.

We seek to influence decision-makers by engaging directly with older people to develop evidence-based policy proposals to ensure the needs and priorities of older people are high on the agenda in a wide range of policy areas.

Age Scotland develops policy positions on devolved issues in Scotland. Our sister organisation Age UK forms policy on reserved issues affecting Scotland. For more information on where decision-making power lies in Scotland, please click here.

Age Scotland is proud to have pledged support to the First Minister’s National Advisory Council on Women and Girls (NACWG).
