age friendly Wales

As a nation, we're living longer.

It's in our interest to create an age friendly Wales today.

What does an 'age friendly Wales' look like? In an age friendly Wales, older people would not experience barriers to independent living. They will enjoy good health; live safely; will be free from discrimination; and will remain actively engaged within their community.

By developing communities, advocacy and policy changes, we all stand to gain from empowering older people.

Pledge your support

I pledge my support for an age friendly Wales.

We have eight main goals to creating an age friendly Wales.

  • Health care - supporting older people in Wales to treat and manage health conditions through effective health care services.
  • Equality - giving older people in Wales an opportunity to enjoy later life and to get involved in community decision making, without being a victim of ageism.
  • Social care - community and residential care services across Wales support older people to maximise quality of life.
  • Community - all older people in Wales are respected, socially included and safe.
  • Transport - there is sufficient integrated public and community transport throughout Wales to ensure older people can access communities and services
  • Money - no older person in Wales has to live in poverty.
  • Opportunities - all older people in Wales are given the appropriate opportunities for expression, social activities and to continue to learn.
  • Information - all older people in Wales have access to appropriate information, advice and advocacy, and are digitally included.
