Wales Action Week is an opportunity for business to work with community organisations, charity partners and volunteers to raise the profile of an emerging social issue. This year, Wales Action Week will focus on the ageing population in Wales.
Building on the success of Give & Gain Day and the inaugural Wales Action Week last year, Wales Action Week 2015 will focus on the challenges of the ageing population. By 2037 around one quarter of the population of the UK will be aged 65 or older.
As a result there will be challenges for the economy, the labour market, communities, employers and households. BITC Cymru will be working with partners across the private, public and voluntary sectors to consider ways to address the challenge and how business can play a role in making a positive difference.
Throughout Wales Action Week, BITC Cymru will be arranging, facilitating and signposting activities and information related to the challenges of the ageing population in Wales.
