Listening to People aged 50+

Swansea Council is committed to listening to people aged 50+.The embedding of human rights as part of the Council’s commitment to the Dublin Declaration requires a whole Council approach to engagement and involvement.  The Pandemic has meant that thought needs to be given to how and where we engage with people, in this new and unprecedented time of working.

In order to get this right, we need your help to co-produce mechanisms that are fit for purpose and involve people in decisions that affect them, in quality and meaningful ways. This survey aims to ask questions that will help us to do this. If you do not agree, or think we have missed something, please also let us know. What you have to say is very important.

This survey needs to be completed by 17th September 2021.

After we have read through all responses we will produce a consultation report that will be shared on the Council web-site and via community networks, groups & forums, to tell you how the Ageing Well Steering Group have listened to what you have said, and where we have or have not been able to make changes.

Swansea Council is the data controller for any personal information you provide on this form. Your information will be used in the exercise of our official authority and will not be used for any other purpose. We will not share your data with third parties unless we are required or permitted to do so by law

Data protection law describes the legal basis for our processing your data as necessary for the performance of a public task. For further information about how Swansea Council uses your personal data, including your rights as a data subject, please see our corporate privacy notice on our website.

Participation

Participation means making sure good quality arrangements are in place to ensure people are listened to, and that their opinion is heard, in decisions that are being made that affect them.

As a Council, to make sure participation is the best it can be across the organisation, we pledge to:

- Involve people aged 50+ directly in the design, monitoring and evaluation of services they receive.
- Learn about how other organisations are doing this, and develop plans that meet the needs of people  aged 50+ in Swansea.
- Develop clear targets to listen to people aged 50+ from marginalised groups.
- Involve people aged 50+ in the recruitment of staff who have responsibilities that impact on them.
- Adopt the National Principles for Public Engagement, to make sure when people aged 50+ participate, their experience is a quality one
