Promoting Health and Wellbeing

Our Health and Wellbeing team works with community groups and services, and other Age Scotland departments, to enable older people in Scotland to be as well as they can be. Its activities include:

  • Raising awareness what all of us can do to boost the likelihood of us enjoying a long and healthy later life.
  • Supporting the charity’s Information and Advice team in developing health-related publications.
  • Offering healthy active ageing activities and projects for older people in groups, and individually, including Body Boosting Bingo, Power Quiz, and Around the House in 80 Days.
  • Canvassing the views and experiences of older people, health-professionals, academics, and others to inform current and future health-promotion activities.
