Your views on our future direction


We are currently developing the Commission’s Framework for Action 2013-17, which will guide our work over the next four years.

It is founded on the views of older people, as well as those that support and represent them, that have been gathered through extensive and ongoing engagement across Wales during the past year. 

We believe that the four themes within our Framework for Action underpin a good quality life; a life that has value, meaning and purpose.

The themes are:

  • I feel listened to and respected
  • I can do the things that matter to me
  • I get the help I need, when I need it, in the way I want it
  • I live in a place that suits me and my life

The themes provide a clear focus for our work and reflect the outcomes that older people have told us matter to them. In this way the Commission can be confident that our work is actively improving the lives of older people in Wales.

We are seeking the views of older people and stakeholders on the present working draft of the Framework for Action and would welcome your comments, thoughts and suggestions so that we can ensure that our future work is informed by those who are directly affected by it.

Please respond using the feedback form that can be downloaded below and return any feedback and comments to us by Monday 3 December.
