Local People Linking raises awareness of older people’s human rights based on their lived experiences in their communities. We co-deliver human rights sessions with community members across a range of different groups.
We are supporting older people from a variety of backgrounds as they develop and share information that is accessible on activities and services happening in their area.
We’re here to help bring groups together to learn about each other and create new opportunities in the community.
The project is currently running in West Dunbartonshire. We have also previously worked on this project in East Renfrewshire and Aberdeenshire. Click here to see the flyer for our work in West Dubartonshire.
Learning about rights
As part of the Local People Linking project, we are offering free human rights training. This is open to anyone who is interested in learning more about human rights and how they play a part in community supports and activities for older people.
Who is it for? All are welcome, including older people, families, friends, community groups as well as workers from any sector working with older people.
What’s involved? Taster sessions at a time and place suitable for community groups and/or practitioners. We offer a follow up session to support the group with any action points and further training if required.
What people have told us so far
Access to information is key.
Participation has to be meaningful.
Diversity – recognising that not all older people enjoy the same things.
Raising awareness – older people want to be informed so they can inform others.
Human rights are about making your lived experiences heard.
We are now running sessions in West Dunbartonshire.
