Formal Reviews

The Commissioner has legal powers to review the adequacy and effectiveness of law, policy and strategy affecting the interests of older people in Wales. There is also the power to review and monitor the operation of complaints, advocacy, advice and whistle blowing arrangements to ascertain whether and to what extent Wales is effective in safeguarding and promoting the rights and welfare of older people.
