Making your voice heard – engagement with Heléna Herklots, Older People’s Commissioner for Wales

As agencies and organisations begin to work on their recovery from the Coronavirus pandemic, we are asking: ‘What needs to be done next?’ and ‘How we can make our communities more age-friendly?’

We want to hear from you about what our communities should look like in the future and would like to invite you to share your thoughts and feelings.

We will be asking what you think needs to happen about:

  • the outdoor environment so that older people can feel safe to go outdoors - are there enough green spaces that are age-friendly? 
  • transport – getting to where you want to go – what needs to happen to make it safe – keeping mobile - what about the future? 
  • housing – is there a need for more/better houses – age-friendly – what about heating costs? 
  • What needs to happen so that older people can still participate with groups and clubs – what about loneliness and isolation? 
  • making sure that older people are treated fairly, included and not discriminated against
  • helping older people to feel listened to and included in the community, and able to stay in employment if they wish. 
  • communication and information – much is happening online – what’s the way forward? 
  • access to services and support in the community – what about health and social care services

 

There won’t be time to cover everything, so we are inviting those who attend to choose their top 2-3 topics to discuss.

This meeting is open to older people. There are only 15 spaces available at this meeting, so please register as soon as possible.

We welcome contributions in both English and Welsh
