The Older People’s Commissioner for Wales has published a new report, Leave no-one behind: Action for an age-friendly recovery
The report examines the significant impact that Covid-19 has had on older people throughout Wales, and sets out the action needed across a number of key areas – including social care and health, the economy, and our communities – that must be delivered as we move forward to ensure that older people can participate fully in Wales’s recovery and can access any support they may need.
The Commissioner has identified practical action that must be delivered immediately to tackle issues created by the pandemic, as well as longer-term action designed to tackle the wider structural issues that affect older people which have been exacerbated by Covid-19.
The report is based on evidence captured through extensive engagement with older people, who have shared their experiences with the Commissioner throughout the pandemic, as well as information and evidence gathered through ongoing engagement with bodies and organisations working with and for older people.
