About Scottish Older People’s Assembly [SOPA]

The Scottish Older People's Assembly is a small charitable organisation which exists to give a strong voice to older people about their experiences of life in Scotland, the challenges they face and concerns they have, and to celebrate the positive contribution that older people make to society.


Are you passionate about the rights of older people? The Scottish Older People’s Assembly is looking for Trustees to join its Board.

As a small charity, SOPA’s Trustees play a valuable role in supporting the organisation to ensure that the voices of older people are heard by those making decisions that affect them. We’re particularly keen to hear from those representing older people with skills and experience that can support SOPA’s work, including those with experience of charity finance, IT, legal, fundraising, marketing and social media and charity governance.
