Dear Editor

Age Cymru's 2024 survey What Matters to You?

Age Cymru and its key partners have launched their fifth annual What Matters to You survey of the over 50s in Wales to gain a better understanding of their needs, challenges, and aspirations. 

And we’d like as many of your older readers as possible to complete the survey so we can gather crucial evidence to inform and influence key decision makers in Wales including the Welsh Government, local health and social services, and the wider care sector.    

The survey covers a wide range of issues including health and social care, personal finances, housing, caring responsibilities, opportunities for paid work, and public transport, including hospital transport. 

We know many of you are facing some tough challenges right now so, we need to know what your priorities are and what your ideas are for addressing some of these challenges.   

The more information we gather the more influential and effective we become when campaigning with and for older people in Wales. 

Visit to complete the survey online in English or for the Welsh version visit

You may also call 029 2043 1555 for a paper copy in both languages and return it via our freepost address. 

Your sincerely 

Victoria Lloyd 

Chief Executive, Age Cymru
