Making Stirling a great place to grow old

The great news is that many of us are living longer than ever before. In the Stirling area, this means that our population is getting older. While good news, an ageing population brings with it specific challenges that, as a Council, we need to be ready to meet.

What is LinkAge Stirling?

LinkAge Stirling is a free sign-posting pilot project to connect older adults with local services and groups and improve their well-being.

LinkAge Stirling is currently available to those living in the Trossachs and Teith area (Rural North).

Anyone over the age of 65 living in the Trossachs and Teith looking for more opportunities to make connections with others in the community.

  • Would you like to go out more, but you find it difficult?
  • Would you like to volunteer or be more active in your local community?
  • Would you like to meet new people?
  • Would you like to see your friends and family more often?

Then LinkAge can help you!

Together we will look for ways to achieve your goals and provide support to any issues you might face.

Remember that you can also make a referral for someone you know (a friend, a relative, a neighbour) that you think might benefit from some help!

Research project

To learn more about the needs of the older population in the Trossachs and Teith area, we have completed a research project involving older adults.
