Commenting on Sarah Rochira’s first day in office as the new Older People’s Commissioner for Wales, Robert Taylor - Chief Executive Officer of Age Cymru says:

“Age Cymru congratulates Sarah Rochira on her first day at work as the new Older People’s Commissioner for Wales.

“We’re very encouraged by Sarah’s commitment to fighting poverty among older people; ensuring that older people have a voice to campaign for them, and ensuring older people are treated with dignity and respect.

“The Older People’s Commissioner for Wales is a force for change, and Sarah’s appointment coincides with one of the biggest demographic changes – our rapidly ageing population, that we’ve see in modern history.

“We look forward to continuing the close working relationship that Age Cymru has established with the Older People’s Commission and making Wales a good place to grow old.”
