Influencing Opportunity (24) - The Older People’s Commissioner for Wales Consultation.

January 17, 2019


As part of our commitment to influencing and engaging, we share the information below with you.


If you believe this is a priority area for further discussion at one of DVSC’s network meetings or Membership Forum do let us know.




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.

The closing date for responses is Friday 22 February 2019
