The government’s policy for older people and their carers seeks to promote social inclusion and control over their lives, ensuring respect and choice. This enables older people to live independently for as long as possible, benefit from tailored care and support, and experience an enhanced quality of life.

The Scottish Government is working to enable older Scots to live healthy, active and independent lives. It works with the UK Government to tackle pensioner poverty and providing security and dignity for older people is central to its social justice agenda.
