We are COPA (Cymru Older People’s Alliance). We aim to ensure that the voice of older people is represented at the Welsh Government. Nothing about us without us.
We are a registered charity, made up of members across Wales who volunteer to put forward local and national issues effecting older people. How are our local matters heard? How are these represented at national government level?
I joined COPA because I was frustrated that my voice as an older woman was not heard or represented, I wanted to make a difference. COPA can make a difference, through projects that directly engage with older people, members of the board advise ministers on issues such as housing, transport, loneliness and isolation.
The Welsh government are the first to have ‘A Strategy for Older People’, your voice can help inform this. We invite people from all across Wales to join us to help deliver on your issues and ensure policies and strategies are relevant, informed and acted on.
