Advocacy in care homes
The Older People's Commissioner is undertaking a review of advocacy arrangements for older people in care homes in Wales. A significant amount of scoping work and research has already been undertaken on behalf of the Commissioner. The Older People’s Commissioner will gather further information from a range of sources and visit a number of care homes during the review process to speak to older people about their needs.
Community mapping and tension monitoring
The Welsh Government has produced this step-by-step guide to understanding community dynamics, trends in cohesion and emerging tensions. Any partnership setting out with the intention of promoting community cohesion has to understand the communities living in their local area and find out about the views and perceptions of local people identify any pressing issues that could result in local tensions. This guide aims to help local authorities and their partners to carry out these tasks.
