Age Alliance Wales (AAW) was set up in 2003 and is funded by the Welsh Government. It is a powerful alliance of 21 national voluntary organisations committed to working together to develop the legislative, policy and resource frameworks that will improve the lives of older people in Wales.

Collectively AAW member organisations possess extensive service development and service delivery knowledge in a range of policy areas. Most organisations also act at a strategic as well as an operational level and many are membership based.

"One year on: How the Social Services and Well-being Act (Wales) 2014 is impacting on the lives of older people and on the role of the third sector"

Survey closed

The React to the Act survey for older people and professionals is now closed.

We would like to thank all of you who have taken the time to complete the survey and tell us about your experiences. 

The findings from the survey will be published on this site by mid-October.


A 'Think-Piece' report is published today reflecting the role of the third sector in
supporting older people's health and care needs, and how relationships within
and without the sector need to develop in order to meet the rising challenge of
ageing. Working in partnership with WCVA and Age Alliance Wales, Welsh Institute
for Health and Social Care has compiled a document from a series of interesting
and thought provoking essays by leaders within the sector.  
The Think-Piece is published ahead of a series of 'roundtable' discussions over the
coming months and will be followed by a report in the autumn.
