Following 8 years of austerity, people of Wales will face a further two years of cuts in public service funding.

Falling is not an inevitable part of growing older 
It's a common misconception that falling is seen as an inevitable part of ageing, something to accept, something to worry about. Many are embarrassed when they've had a fall and are reluctant to talk about it but talking about falls can help to dispel these myths and provide you with answers, solutions, freedom and independence.

Every year we use Falls Awareness Week as an opportunity to encourage conversations around falls, promote collaboration between service providers so that we can reach more people who need our vital services and highlight the work that we and our partners do across Wales to help and support our older community members.
