We work to improve the lives of older people. We celebrate ageing and believe it presents unprecedented opportunities and challenges at home and abroad. We challenge ageist prejudice in society:
- We help people enjoy a better later life by providing life-enhancing services and vital support.
Our practical services help people stay independent at home and carry on doing the things they love most. We also work to tackle isolation and sustain good health.
- We will keep developing products that are specifically designed for people in later life.
We provide services that address market failures, and support the public and private sectors to design age-friendly products and services.
Our network of shops will act as a focal point for the local community, providing information and help with local services.
- We provide advice and information through our helplines, publications and online.
Our Information and Advice service will offer support to on a wide range of issues - from claiming benefits, to staying fit and healthy.
- We work in Wales, championing older people’s rights and needs.
Age Cymru will campaign alongside older people for changes in legislation, policy and practice that will bring a better later life.
- By joining forces, we will ensure more of our funds go where they’re needed.
