A Brief History -

 

The global population is ageing. More people are living for longer than at any time in the history of the civilized world. In the United Kingdom at the present time (2017), the proportion of older adults (aged 60-years) in our community is about 1-in-5 (20%). As the population continues to grow older in the future, it is estimated that this statistic will increase to 1-in-4 (25%) by 2030.

 

Sadly, an aging population means that criminals who specialise in targeting the vulnerable are also on the increase. Bogus callers (distraction burglars) and rogue traders are criminals who use the vulnerabilities of our elder citizens to decieve and steal.

 

The Senior Citizen Liaison Team (SCLT) came into existence in December 2009 in the major UK city of Bristol, with the intention of helping the older adult population feel safer in their daily lives through 3-primary objectives:

 

~ Crime Prevention ~ Victim Support ~ Social Advocacy

 

The SCLT is made up of a team of volunteers who give presentations to community groups and organisations, as well as sitting at board-level on a number of social advocacy forums and organisations which work to support the older adult population. The SCLT also produce and distribute the award-winning 'Senior Siren' magazine, which is made available to hundreds of thousands of readers on a quarterly basis.

 

The SCLT became a registered UK charity in 2012 (No: 1148383) and has expanded to provide a variety of it's services to clients and agencies nationwide, as well as offering training and advocacy services on an international level.
