We’re Here Too

We're here too headline

There are many examples of older people who have higher support needs being part of shaping and contributing to the services they use. There are also good examples of frailer older people being part of their local Older People’s Forum or contributing to the plans for their community. But there are also people who are finding this difficult, or are not sure where to start. There are older people who feel they are no longer part of their community, and who feel their views don’t matter. They don’t want to be overlooked.
In 2014 Outside the Box and Scottish Care organised a series of We’re Here Too events to bring together people who want to see more opportunities for all older people to be able to participate in the issues that interest them. We’re Here Too is part of the Making Choices and People as Partners projects funded by the Scottish Government to support the implementation of SDS.
