The Strategy for Older People in Wales 2003-2008

This Strategy is the product of extensive consultation, research and expert views about the lives of older people in Wales both now and in the future.

This Strategy is the product of extensive consultation, research and expert views about the lives of older people in Wales both now and in the future. The aims, objectives and more detailed programmes and projects reflect the findings of the report of the Advisory Group ‘When I’m 64…..and more’ published in May 2002 and over 100 responses to it. The Strategy recognises that:

  • Over the next 20 years demographic changes will significantly change the balance of the population and mean that future policies and programmes in Wales must reflect the needs of an ageing society.
  • There is a need to improve the quality, quantity and responsiveness of services for older people.
