South West Seniors Assembly – Taking care of our Independence

A conference was held recently in Weston Super Mare and a number of presentations were given on social isolation, pensioner poverty and the challenges facing the Care system in times of austerity. The chair Brian Warwick issued a call for the establishment of a Minister or Commissioner for Older People for England. He asked all present to lobby their local part representatives, ahead of the General Election next year, to include this item in their political manifestos. Scotland and Wales have both had a specific cabinet member, appointments which have proven very effective. for more information please visit: www.southwestseniors.org.uk
