Authors Bill Johnston and our own Head of Policy, Dr Craig Dalzell challenge negative approaches ageing and old age by exposing the baleful influence of neoliberalism and ageism on policy and public perceptions.

The idea that ‘Scotland is ageing’ has become embedded in our politics but is couched in language suggesting that this is a negative feature of society. Ageist phrases like ‘demographic time bomb’ and presentations of ‘the old’ as a threat to welfare and the future of ‘the young’ proliferate. However, few commentators have attempted to tackle the real consequences of an ageing society overall and how to adapt so that we treat ageing as a natural and valued part of all of our lives instead of a regrettable and perhaps humiliating one.
