    • Scams and other forms of abuse or exploitation affecting older people
    • How to best support and protect older people experiencing loneliness and/or isolation

    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
    • Lunch

    Transport costs

    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
