Let’s Talk About Brexit

Section: the ALLIANCE Engagement in Europe People and Networks Location: Glasgow City, Scotland wide, UK wide, Europe Date of event: 05/12/2018 at 13:00 - 16:00

The ALLIANCE conference, in partnership with IFIC and Scottish Care, will examine the impact of Brexit on older people in Scotland.

Following on from our successful Brexit Town Hall Conversations earlier this year, the ALLIANCE will be embarking on a second consultation examining the impact of Brexit on older people in Scotland. The consultation will:

  • Look at the impact of Brexit on older people;
  • Reach out to seldom heard voices;
  • And hear from those who care for older people.

In partnership with the International Foundation of Integrated Care (this link will take you away from our website) and Scottish Care (this link will take you away from our website), we will be attending several national events and conferences to hold a series of pop-up workshops giving staff who support older people, health and social care professionals and third sector representatives a chance to have their say on Brexit. We also intend to communicate with sheltered housing and social hubs for older people, in order to shine a light on the seldom heard voices in the communities of Scotland.

This will culminate in a final conference on the 5th December (this link will take you away from our website) at the Lighthouse in Glasgow. We will be joined by the International Foundation of Integrated Care and Scottish Care on the day, and hope to announce further speakers very shortly.

Four questions will be asked throughout the day’s discussions:

  • How do you envisage older people will be affected by Brexit?
  • What matters most to you, and to the people you care for?
  • What information would be helpful – and in what format?
  • What would help give voice to your ideas and concerns?

This is an opportunity for you to have your say, influence decision-making at a national level and ensure that the rights of older people in Scotland are taken into account in Brexit negotiations.

You can sign up for the final conference on BookItBee (this link will take you away from our website).

A light lunch will be provided on the day for all attendees.
