Commissioner for Older People (Wales) Act 2006
An ageing society is bringing unprecedented change as more people are living longer with better health and greater prosperity.
The 2006 Act created the office of Commissioner for Older People in Wales to help manage the impact of demographic change.
We launched our Strategy for Older People in Wales in 2003. This provides a framework for all public bodies in Wales to plan for an ageing society and to improve services to older people.
In the same year, we assembled an Advisory Group of people with particular understanding of how a Commissioner might work in practice, or people who represented organisations which work to make life better for older people. The Group recommended that a Commissioner would:
- play an important part in speaking up for older people;
- help to alter people's attitudes towards older people so that they are treated with respect, and as individuals.
A consultation was run in 2004 and we received very supportive feedback from organisations and individuals alike. The 2006 Act is based on the Group's recommendations.
The Act can be viewed in full at the website for the Office of Public Sector Information.
