On June 10th a group from Ladies Guild attended the Senedd for the launch of the report of the Older People’s Commissioner for Wales entitled,” Making a difference for older people in Wales”. The report covers so many topics that older people are concerned about, for example, care homes; public services; travel and well-being, to mention just a few. The consulting groups and the engagement of diverse groups across the whole of Wales have shaped this report. Issues affecting older people will be heard and acted upon and legal powers will be used to bring about change that older people want and have a right to see.
What is reassuring is that if an older person has issues or concerns that are not being listened to or have been shelved, there is a direct telephone line to the Commissioner’s team which will stand up and speak out on your behalf. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or Tel:08442 640670
