Speaking Up For Our Age

Age Scotland 75th Anniversary celebrations

In October 2018 Age Scotland celebrated 75 years of national and local older people's groups and organisations in Scotland with a reception in the Scottish Parliament.

Our predecessor charity, the Scottish Old People's Welfare Committee was established in 1943, later becoming Age Concern Scotland and more recently renamed Age Scotland following the merger with Help the Aged. 

In the build up to our important birthday, and with the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, Age Scotland volunteers, members and staff took part in an ambitious project to research the story of national and local older people's groups and organisations in Scotland from 1943 to the present day, and present our history in a special anniversary timeline magazine and film.
