As the weather gets colder and the days grow shorter, it’s time to reflect on the past year and look forward to the year ahead.

This year has been a challenging one for many people, and thanks to the support of our donors, volunteers, staff and partners, we’ve been able to continue providing essential services to those in need.

Sadly 220,000 older people in Wales say they feel lonely. Right now, older people with disabilities or ill-health are facing unprecedented challenges as they struggle with spiralling fuel and food costs.

Equally challenging is the stigma some older people feel about applying for support which they’re entitled to. An estimated £200 million of pension credit goes unclaimed each year in Wales.

Age Cymru Powys is committed to helping our older Powys residents stay warm, safe, and healthy. So we are very pleased to launch our new Winter Wellbeing programme.

Winter Wellbeing offers a variety of services, including face-to-face or telephone friendship, Home Energy Checks, help with the Cost-of-Living, and advice and support on any matter that may be affecting your quality of life.

Whether you feel inspired to get involved as a Winter Wellbeing Volunteer, or if we can help you in any way during the colder months – then we would love to hear from you.

We are here for you in Powys.
