Older Person's Commissioner Seeks Your Views

Published: 18 Jan 19

Share your views on how we can make Wales the best place in the world to grow older The Older People’s Commissioner for Wales wants Wales to be the best place in the world to grow older and is currently determining the work she will undertake over the next three years to improve the lives of older people. Since she took up post, the Commissioner has travelled the length and breadth of Wales, meeting and speaking with older people and organisations to hear about what would make Wales the best place in the world to grow older. This has helped the Commissioner to identify three key long-term priorities for Wales, against which she will deliver a wide range of work over the next three years: • Ensuring everyone can age well • Ending ageism and discrimination • Stopping abuse of older people The Commissioner wants the voices and experiences of as many older people and stakeholders as possible to inform her work and would welcome your views on what she should focus on under these priority areas, particularly the changes you want to see and your ideas about how to make these changes happen.

Support for Carers

Published: 13 Jan 19

The Carer's panel for Cardiff and the Vale is an opportunity for carer’s to shape and influence the services available to them in Cardiff and the Vale and to have the opportunity to meet other carers from a wide variety of backgrounds and caring roles. As you may be aware, the definition of a carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support. Many of us will be carers at some time throughout our lives and we know that there will be many carers in the community that your council serves. All unpaid carers are welcome to join the panel and they can come along to as many of the meetings as they are able to. We have many plans afoot to support carers in Cardiff and the Vale and want the widest possible array of input when developing these services, so that we can make sure they serve the needs of all carers. The plan is to hold these meetings monthly throughout the year, so I will circulate details of future meetings as soon they are agreed by the panel. Read More...
