West Lothian 50+ Network

We’re delighted that you’ve found your way to our website! If you’re aged over 50 and live in the West Lothian area in Central Scotland, you’ve taken the first step in making the rest of your life the best of your life.

That’s our motto at the West Lothian 50+ Network, and if you’ve already joined our Network, or are thinking of doing so, you can look forward to becoming involved with a friendly and supportive group of over fifties – currently around 480 members – who enjoy making things happen for themselves.

Our organisation is run by volunteer members for members which creates a wonderful sense of community spirit within the Network. Together we run and take part in a wide range of activities – almost  50 different interest groups – to help you stay fit and healthy in both mind and body, whilst socialising with others.

There really is something for everybody’s taste and level of ability, but perhaps more important is the chance to meet up and join in with old friends or make new friends along the way.

To avoid non-essential contact with others to help curb the spread of Coronavirus, all activities have been cancelled until further notice.  Any advance payments that have been made for trips will be reimbursed as soon as possible. The office is closed for personal visits, however you will still be able to contact us by telephone and email. Please follow us on facebook @WestLothian50PlusNetwork for updates.

What Our Members Are Saying
“Since losing my husband 10 years ago I have found the 50+ Network a life saver. I have made many new friends, socialised in many ways. Enjoyed lovely days out, theatre etc and wonderful holidays. As soon as you enter a hall or coach you recognise and can chat to most people.”

“I would be at a loss if not for the 50+ Network”

“Before I moved to West Lothian, apart from my neighbours, I hardly knew anyone. Now I can be anywhere and I usually bump into someone I know through the 50+ Network. It’s given me a sense of belonging.”

“You can talk over problems with other members and not feel it’s only you with a problem”

“The Network has helped me to transition from work into retirement. Letting my offspring fly the nest and give them and partners space to live their lives and I do the same”
