Who we are

Hourglass Scotland is the national voice for older people at risk. We support the creation of a society that truly values older people – where those at risk can live free from abuse perpetrated by those in whom they have an expectation of trust. When abuse occurs, we seek an environment where it can be identified and addressed.


We are committed to urgent public review of the abuse of older people, and to ending the abuse, harm and exploitation of older people. We strive to guarantee safer ageing for all.



Our aims: 

Hourglass Scotland will continue to lobby and influence the legal and criminal justice framework and the Scottish Government to protect older people from abuse and create a national conversation around safer ageing.
