Events for people over 50 in North Wales
Age Cymru and Age Alliance Wales focus groups in November BANGOR and WREXHAM- We will be holding focus groups across Wales during November, including one in Bangor and one in Wrexham, aimed at gaining older people’s opinions on a range of matters, including opportunities for learning and participation in the local community, the impact of cuts to public services, housing issues, transport, the future of social care – and covering the cost. These events will help us to gain a better insight into how older people view Wales as a place to grow older. The information gathered will guide and assist the future work and campaigning priorities of both Age Cymru and other members of Age Alliance Wales.
