Cllr Child said: “Over the coming months the council, working with our partners, will be looking to identify new initiatives to reduce social isolation in a Covid safe way, encourage active ageing and also tackle other issues that are important to older people such as digital exclusion.

“I was really pleased people were able to join me and hope they enjoyed it as much as I did and felt it was worthwhile.

“We have recently appointed Rhys Thomas as our new Older Person’s Partnership and Involvement Officer and Rhys also joined us.

“Rhys will be working with community members and groups to hear the voice of people aged 50 and over and to work with them to improve opportunities to live and age well in Swansea.”

People aged 50+ and living in Swansea who would like to join the council’s information network and hear of future engagement events can do so by e-mailing rhys.thomas@swansea.gov.uk or telephoning Rhys on 07977346177.
