Older People in Scotland

A Fairer Scotland for Older People

People in Scotland are living longer, healthier lives and that is something to be celebrated.

However, I am also aware that older people can be marginalised. Maybe that is because we fear ageing and the impacts it can have on our lives through deteriorating health or because, quite simply, ageing is something most of us don’t want to think about.
