Diverse Cymru has been commissioned by the Welsh Government to conduct independent research into crimes against older people (anyone aged 50+). We will be gathering the views from members of the public as well as experts in the field. The project aims to increase understanding and awareness of crimes against older people. We are keen to hear the views, experiences, and ideas of older people across Wales and of the practitioners who work with them.
The surveys are now closed. Thank you to everyone who responded, we’ve got lots of data which will help contribute towards a better outcome.
We’re also will be holding a series of discussion events with older people all around Wales and with experts in the field. We will be holding events at locations across Wales to facilitate these discussions:
- Cardiff – 10th February 11am-2pm at the Taff Housing Conference Suite
- Carmarthen – 11th February 11am-2pm at the CAVS
- Llandrindod Wells – 22nd February 11am-2pm at the Metropole Hotel
- Wrexham – 24th February 11am-2pm at the Erddig Room, Glyndwr University
Lunch will be provided. Travel and access costs can be reimbursed. Spaces are limited, and will be allocated on a first come first come basis. Alternatively, if you can’t make the above dates or if you have more to tell us, then you can participate by telephone or Skype interview. We’d be more than happy to chat with you and answer any questions that you may have. If you have any questions or want to register for one of the events please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call Hannah Mason on 029 2036 8888 ext. 231 to have a chat about this project and/or crimes against older people in Wales.
