I’D LIKE to invite your readers to take part in this year’s Age Positive Week. Age Positive Week is Age Cymru’s celebration of ageing and older people’s contribution to our communities.

Being ‘age positive’ is an important part of our mission to create an age friendly Wales and to counter the negative stereotyping of older people and ageism that we all too often see, hear or experience in society. 

This year Age Positive Week will take place from Sunday 1 October to Sunday 8 October. You can take part in Age Positive Week by organising an event that involves older people such as a tea party; a day trip; a concert; a dance class or even a school assembly.

If you would like an information pack about Age Positive Week, please contact Age Cymru on 029 2043 1555 or email agepositive@agecymru.org.uk. You can also find out more about Age Positive Week by visiting agecymru.org.uk/agepositive.
