The Strategy for Older People in Wales (2008-2013)

This second strategy has had as its focus mainstreaming the ageing agenda. It has seen the Welsh Assembly Government (WAG) working to raise wider awareness of the implications of an ageing society in Wales. In particular, it stated that the WAG will also promote a new vision of future housing options for older people, including extra care housing that can provide more support than traditional sheltered housing while offering greater independence. At that time, it was supported by a £21m annual capital grant programme.
