Experts are gathering at the Senedd tonight to look at how to make Wales’ transport system meet the needs of our ageing population.
Assembly Members; representatives from the transport industry; charities; local authorities and older people will be discussing age friendly transport.
We'll also be launching our ‘EnvisAGE – Towards an age-friendly Wales’ report at the event.
”An age friendly transport network - which will link up communities and give older people freedom and independence by providing them with access to the essential services and amenities they need, is a key part of creating an age friendly Wales", says our Chief Executive, Ian Thomas.
“With tonight’s event, we’re bringing together experts from across the country to begin the conversation about how we are going to work together to deliver an age friendly transport network for Wales.”
Dr Charles Musselwhite from the Centre for Innovative Ageing at Swansea University is our guest speaker and he will be giving a talk entitled ‘Developing an age friendly transport system in Wales’.
Swansea East AM Mike Hedges is sponsoring the event.
