HOPE will enable older people and carers to engage with professionals, participate in their communities, understand their rights as an older person, access information to make informed choices and, at the end of the day, have their voices heard.

They are recruiting and training community based volunteers all over Wales to provide independent advocacy support to local older people and carers so they can help shape the key decisions affecting their lives and avoid getting into a crisis situation. You can find out further information here.

HOPE will make a huge difference to the lives of many older people who currently don’t know how to deal with their concerns or don’t have the confidence to speak up about what they really need.
