Our information guides are short and easy to digest and provide an overview of the relevant topic. Our factsheets provide more in-depth information. 

On this page you can view all of our guides and factsheets in numerical order. For guides and factsheets split into different subject areas (for example, health or care) use our links on the left.

We also have a bilingual Age Cymru Advice Poster (PDF 66KB) and two sided Age Cymru Advice Leaflet (PDF 290KB) which can be printed and displayed, so older people or their friends and family are aware of our services. 

If you need information and advice, or you would like to request paper copies of any of our information guides and factsheets, you can call our advice line on 08000 223 444 to talk to someone or email us at advice@agecymru.org.uk.
