in News

Older People’s Commissioner for Wales, Heléna Herklots CBE, said:

“It’s crucial that older people’s voices and experiences are at the heart of decisions about the action that will be taken to make Wales a nation of age-friendly communities.

“I therefore welcome the Welsh Government’s announcement that £1.1m will be made available to support local authorities to engage and consult with older people as they develop and deliver their plans to make communities more age-friendly.

“This is an important step towards delivering against the priorities set out in the Welsh Government’s Strategy for an Ageing Society, and will help to ensure that the action taken is guided by older people’s knowledge and expertise.”
