Please give a summary of your initiative (in English):
Ageing Well in Wales is a national Programme hosted by the Older People's Commissioner for Wales. It brings together individuals and communities with public, private and voluntary sectors to develop and promote practical and innovative ways to make Wales a good place to grow older for everyone.
The Ageing Well Programme is actively supported by Welsh Government and key national organisations. It has a rapidly growing network of members encompassing diverse organisations and interests across Wales. Strong links are also maintained with partners across Europe, reflecting Wales being awarded the highest three star Reference Site status as part of the European Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP-AHA).
The Programme has five objectives:
- to make Wales a nation of age-friendly communities.
- to make Wales a nation of dementia-supportive communities.
- to reduce the number of falls.
- to reduce loneliness and unwanted isolation.
- to increase learning and employment opportunities.
