This is a free event aimed at older people, and those supporting or working with older people across Scotland. The programme will include:
Action on Elder Abuse Scotland: find out about our work and services, including our new Recovery Project and opportunities for volunteering with us
A family perspective: Mary Moultrie will discuss her elderly mother's experience of financial abuse within the family, and her views on how we can better safeguard older people's finances
Group discussion: your opportunity to share your views and help shape developments to better support older people in Scotland
Scottish music to celebrate St Andrews Day
Information stalls and networking
We really want as many people to attend as possible; especially those that would not otherwise be able to. Although we only have a small funding pot we are happy to consider reasonable travel costs of older people on a first-come first-served basis. Please confirm with us before arranging. We would encourage the use of public transport or share cars/taxis as much as possible.
Surviving Christmas: Copies of the Adult Support and Protection Committee booklet, foldout and easy read are available. To request, please e-mail Shona Mcewan
