Cymru Older People’s Alliance (COPA) is a new charity run by older people for older people. Its main purpose is to ensure that Older People’s Forums and Groups at a local level can have their voice heard at the national level and their views represented to Welsh Government and a range of other Public Bodies. We want to change and improve the lives of older people in Wales.
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.
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.
