Declaration of Rights for Older People

The Welsh Government has produced the Declaration of Rights of Older People in Wales.

The declaration is the first of its kind in the world. It’s purpose is to clarify the rights of older people in Wales. It aims to help older people understand:

  • how the rights apply to them;
  • how they access the rights more effectively; and
  • how the rights relate to the current equality and human rights laws.

The declaration also aims to set out the expectations of older people for the benefit of those responsible for providing them with public services.
