Wales A Good Place to Grow Old
In April 2018 Age Alliance Wales and Age Cymru jointly held a series of focus groups with older people across Wales seeking views on loneliness and isolation, getting out and about, social care and health. The findings of those events have now been compiled into a report which sets out the findings of the events and contains information on what older people feel is of importance to them.
