Our work

Age Cymru

Did you know that Wales has the highest percentage of people aged over 65 in the UK?  In just 20 years this is predicted to rise to 1 in 3 adults.

This is why our work is so important – older people are at the heart of everything we do. 

Age Cymru is the leading charity for all older people in Wales.  We campaign, we research and we fundraise to make sure we build a better life for all older people. We ensure older people’s voices are heard, we challenge and change attitudes, we fight discrimination wherever we find it and we tackle elder abuse in all its forms.

Age Cymru:
• We provide confidential, impartial, simple information and advice for free (Services section)
• We help people to claim their entitlements
• We celebrate creativity in later life
• We make physical activity available
• We work to make residential care a positive experience
• We promote healthy living throughout the year
