SOPA has released its recently finalised three-year plan. It is based on the priorities, discussion and activities that have been identified over the last year and translates those into a clear objectives and actions.
In introducing the plan, Diana Findley, SOPA Chair, remarks
"We may need to re-balance our approach in the light of the COVID pandemic, but always with the aim of making the voice of Older People heard at all levels of government and promoting the great contribution of Older People. SOPA’s diverse membership is a strength, something of which we are rightly proud. It gives us a wide appreciation of the challenges met by communities."

Your Issue, Your Voice is SOPA's new series of information sheets which aims to support older people to have their say, with information on where and how to raise issues, along with tips from our members.
SOPA decided to create this series as a way to further our goal of giving a strong voice to older people about their experience of life in Scotland, their challenges and concerns, and to celebrate the positive contribution that older people make to society. Thank to Caroline Clark for her support on this project and to those of you who contributed advice and quotes. You can download the series from our newsletters page.
We hope to expand the series in 2021, with the next information sheet currently in draft - watch this space!
