Ageing Well in Ceredigion
The Ageing Well in Ceredigion Delivery Plan follows the Older Peoples Strategy for Ceredigion (2004) and will demonstrate how Ceredigion County Council plan to take forward the Ageing Well in Wales programme, through working with our communities, partner agencies and organisations to make Ceredigion a better place to grow old. The Ageing Well in Ceredigion Delivery Plan will focus on 5 main themes, as identified by the Ageing Well in Wales programme. These are:
- Age Friendly Communities
- Dementia Supportive Communities
- Falls Prevention
- Opportunities for employment and new skills
- Loneliness and Isolation.
The Ageing Well in Ceredigion delivery plan will endeavour to tackle these 5 main themes head on in order to ensure that Ceredigion is a great place for growing old, with the needs and requirements of older people taken into full consideration.
The Ceredigion 50+ Logo
The development of our 50+ logo has stemmed from the ideas and drawings of ‘Clwb Ni’ members, an Intergenerational Club based in Aberystwyth. Clwb Ni is a joint partnership between Tai Ceredigion, Plascrug Community School and Ceredigion County Council, and has been supported by the Big Lottery Fund Wales, in order to bring older and younger people together to interact, learn and have fun! Members of ‘Clwb Ni’ both young and old were asked to draw what the word ‘Intergenerational’ means to them. Many interesting ideas came to light, and from these ideas ‘Clwb Ni’ were able to design a brand new logo with the help of Ceredigion County Council’s web development team.
