Age Connects Torfaen is a member of Age Connects Wales, a mutual company that exists to change attitudes to ageing and thereby improve people’s lives.
Age Connects Wales is willing to challenge the cultural and organisational attitudes to older people in Wales and will achieve this by listening to the views of older people and using these to help shift society’s view of age, where old is regarded as a stage in the life course as valuable as any other.
Age Connects Wales will be robust in arguing positively about the place in our society for older people.
Through Age Connects Wales we are maintaining the tradition of our organisations to work together and we now intend to take a progressive step to work collaboratively with other organisations that share our priorities. This will help us to use all of the resources at our disposal to promote the wellbeing of older people in Wales.
