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.

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 complied 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.
