The Cost of Caring for an Ageing Population

This Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA) report identifies that spending on social care for the over 65’s is not keeping pace with the growth in the population of older people.

Written in partneship with Association of Directors of Social Services Cymru (ADSS Cymru) it comments on the Finance Committee’s inquiry into the cost of caring for an ageing population. 

Interestingly, Wales has seen the slowest overall population growth within all UK nations, but has the largest and fastest growing population of older people (aged 65 and over).
