Ceredigion Conservative's Senedd candidate Amanda Jenner had the pleasure of joining the North Ceredigion Forum for Older People's Care for a hustings this evening!
After the event, Amanda said:
“Thank you so much to the forum for organising this hustings and for putting forward such excellent and challenging questions. With an increasing population of those aged over 65, it is vital we consider the issues which impact people in this age group so their rights are protected and their voices heard. I was pleased to put forward two of my priorities. Firstly, that I will continue fighting for fairer funding for large rural councils so that care for older people can be funded properly in Ceredigion.
Secondly, that we must ensure that the voices of all are heard by decision-makers and meaningful and accessible consultation takes place when changes are being made (i.e.not just over the internet). I believe there needs to be a legal requirement for public sector bodies to consult with older people when making decisions that affect their lives. "
The Welsh Conservatives have a plan to support older people in Ceredigion.
