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.
The Age Scotland National Conference brings together our members, guest speakers and invited guests for a day of networking, learning and inspiration. Previous conference themes have included "Taking the long view - exploring the changes and progress made in Scotland in relation to later life over the past 75 years" , "Lifelong Learning" and "Quality of Life in Later Life".
The conference also involves the presentation of the Age Scotland Awards - an awards ceremony celebrating those who are working to make a difference to lives of older people in Scotland.
