Benefits and entitlements
Every year, it's estimated that up to £3.5 billion of state benefits in the UK goes unclaimed by older people. Are you missing out?
Our volunteers give hundreds of thousands of hours of support every year. We've a number of exciting and varied volunteering opportunities.
Every donation is truly valued as it really makes a difference to us continuing our work with and for older people.
There are so many ways to raise money for Age Cymru. Whether you want to run, cycle or skydive, knit, sing or bake, the money you raise will ensure we continue to be here for older people in Wales when they need us the most.
This is a legal document that allows you to appoint one or more people to help you make decisions or to make decisions on your behalf when you are no longer able. This prevents a stranger, or someone you may not trust, from having any power over decisions concerning your welfare.
An Advance Decision or Living Will is a decision you can make now to refuse a specific type of treatment at some time in the future. It lets your carers and health professionals know your wishes about refusing treatment and would only become relevant if you’re unable to make or communicate those decisions yourself.
During March and April 2021 Age Cymru, Cymru Older People’s Alliance (COPA), Welsh Senate of Older People, Active Wales, National Pensioners Convention Wales, and Pensioners Forum Wales worked together to gather the experiences of people aged 50 or over in Wales during the winter lockdown and to understand the perspectives of older people on recovery. The survey was completed by 1216 older people.
