Vale Older People’s Strategy Forum support local carers

Winnie and Rene with members of Penarth Social Group

Winnie Davies and Rene Gannon of the Vale Older People’s Strategy Forum gave an interesting talk to members of Crossroads Care in the Vale’s Penarth Social Group on Monday 21st March.

The Strategy Forum is very active in the Vale of Glamorgan, giving a voice to all those over the age of fifty. Rene and Winnie explained that they are a familiar presence at council meetings, and often attend events to highlight and express the needs of local older people. The Forum also holds an annual information day where older people can find out about the local services available to them.

Winnie said: “Many older people feel isolated as they don’t know where to turn for help and support. The Strategy Forum provides information on services that can make available this support”.
