LOOPS Local Opportunities for Older People

LOOPS is Local Opportunities for Older People. LOOPS supports older people to discover what is happening nearby and find ways to enjoy time with other people.

There are four Local Opportunities for Older People (LOOPs) projects in Edinburgh. The networks support people over the age of 65 to link in with the local community, and find new things to learn or do.
