Age Cymru Awards

Posted Tuesday, November 13th, 2012

Every year, Age Cymru is privileged to work with incredible volunteers and participants through a range of programmes from healthy ageing work to our arts festival. We want to celebrate the outstanding contributions that many people make to the lives of older people through Age Cymru.

The Age Cymru Awards will allow us to build on already established relationships and we also hope they’ll help us to gain the attention of influential organisations and individuals throughout Wales when we publish the inspirational stories of our winners.

We believe that it’s fitting to create the Age Cymru Awards because so many people deserve increased recognition for the work they have done with us. Of course ultimately, they are all winners but on this occasion we’ll recognise five individuals who have made a special contribution.

Why this year?

The Awards have been established this year, 2012, which is the European Year of Active Ageing and Solidarity Between Generations. This theme fits with many Age Cymru programmes and activities.

The Awards

The five awards are based on Age Cymru programmes, Gwanwyn, My Home Life Cymru, Active Ageing, Campaigner of the year and Local Delivery.


The Age Cymru Awards will be presented to the winners at a glittering gala dinner at the Cardiff Hilton, on Friday 8th February 2013.
