Older People's Commissioner
We are calling for the next Scottish Government to establish an Older People’s Commissioner to help protect and promote the rights of older people in Scotland.
The Commissioner's role would be underpinned by legal powers to support them in holding public bodies to account and to take up casework on behalf of older people.
We think the treatment of older people during the Covid-19 pandemic has, more than ever, demonstrated the need for an independent commissioner who works to uphold older people's human rights and acts as a direct link to Government.
