Many thanks to Age UK for a very helpful meeting in Westminster, discussing areas including access to cash, digital exclusion and loneliness. Grateful to them for signposting to the excellent work their colleagues in Age Scotland are doing also, including the very helpful Age Scotland helpline.
This is a free, confidential phone service for older people, their carers and families in Scotland.
As we get older, we can face new challenges and opportunities. You may need to know about rights, organisations and services that are unfamiliar to you. Their advisers provide information and advice on a range of topics as well as friendship for when you just need a friendly chat.
It's free to call and available Monday - Friday 9-5pm on 0800 12 44 222.
