Taking Action Against Ageism (Training)
Ageism underpins many of the issues currently faced by older people and results in negative stereotypes, older people being treated unfairly and their rights not being respected and upheld.
Ageism can also mean that older people are discriminated against when trying to access the services, facilities and opportunities they need to help them to age well.
The Older People’s Commissioner for Wales has developed a training session for older people and those that work with them to help them recognise ageism and the ways to challenge it.
Sessions will be run across Wales, with each training session running for approximately 3 hours. Sessions are available in either Welsh or English.
23 March 2020
9.30am-12.30pm CAVS Office, Carmarthen Welsh
1.30-4.30pm CAVS Office, Carmarthen English
The Commissioner has also developed a new information leaflet – Taking Action Against Ageism – which includes a wide range of information about how to recognise and challenge ageism and age discrimination. If you would like to request copies of the leaflet, please let us know.
