Resources for older people's groups and organisations

1200x360-older-man-smiling.jpgWe work with older people’s groups across the country, supporting them to develop and thrive so that Scotland’s communities are better places for older people to live. Covid-19 presented many challenges for local older people's groups who had to adapt how they provide their services and keep in touch with their members.

We have produced a series of guides to assist older people’s groups and organisations offering practical help on keeping socially connected, practical considerations and accessing funding. You can browse or download the guides for free below. You can also have printed copies posted to you for free by contacting us at members@agescotland.org.uk
