Taking Action Against Ageism Training // Hyfforddiant Gweithredu yn Erbyn Oedraniaeth Free



Ageism underpins many of the issues currently faced by older people and results in negative stereotypes, older people being treated unfairly and their rights not being respected and upheld. 

Ageism can also mean that older people are discriminated against when trying to access the services, facilities and opportunities they need to help them to age well.

Before the Covid19 pandemic, the Older People’s Commissioner for Wales delivered training sessions for older people and those that work with them to help recognise and challenge ageism and age discrimination. The training has now been adapted to an online session specifically for older people.

The session will be run on Zoom and will last for two hours including a break.

The Commissioner has also developed a new information leaflet - Taking Action Against Ageism - which includes a wide range of information about how to recognise and challenge ageism and age discrimination. If you would like to request copies of the leaflet, please let us know.
