We want to highlight and celebrate those in Scotland who have made a significant difference to improving the lives of older people, and so the charity is delighted to invite nominations for the Age Scotland Awards 2012. There are two award categories this year:
Jess Barrow Award for Campaigning
The Jess Barrow award is given to an individual or group whose campiagning has highlighted specific issues and affected change to the benefit of older people.
Patrick Brooks Award for Partnership Working
The Patrick Brooks award acknowledges those individuals, groups or organisations who have demonstrated effective partnership working in the interests of older people.
Have you worked to help make positive changes for older people over the past year? Do you know someone else who has? Are you part of an older person’s group or a service provider that works with older people?
If you would like to be considered for an award, or if you know a group or individual who you think should be recognised, we would be delighted to hear from you.
