Welcome to the Scottish Older People's Assembly (SOPA)

The Scottish Older People's Assembly (SOPA) exists to give 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.

SOPA is a small independent charity with a network of members, both organisations and individuals, with a shared interest in empowering older people to have their voices heard and influencing policy and practice.
