Framework for Action

23.5.13

The Framework for Action outlines the Commissioner’s priorities and the changes she expects to see for older people, as well as the role she will play in delivering these changes.  These include embedding wellbeing at the heart of public services, driving up the quality of health and social care, protecting and improving community services, standing up for older people at risk of harm and tackling prejudice, inequality and discrimination.

The Commissioner has used the strong, consistent and clear voices of older people to develop five priorities within the Framework for Action:

  • Embedding the wellbeing of older people at the heart of public services
  • Driving up the quality of - and availability and access to - health and social care
  • Protecting and improving community services, facilities and infrastructure
  • Standing up for older people who are at risk of harm and ensuring that they are safeguarded and protected
  • Tackling prejudice, inequality and discrimination
