Legislation, Policy & Guidance
In order to illuminate the seriousness of the abuse of older people, Hourglass works with policy and decision-makers to consult and shape legislation and guidelines aimed to alleviate forms of abuse and neglect.
Hourglass also pushes its own policies and lobbying strategies, with work tailored to the policy landscape of each constituent nation. Through this work, Hourglass aims to create a safer ageing agenda and help stop the abuse of older people. Please find a selection of key pieces of Scottish legislation relevant to the abuse of older people, to the left of this page.
