Once again we ask WLBC how true it is that “Whatever the issue under discussion, we want to make sure that the needs, wishes and preferences of older people are fully taken into account.
“To achieve this and ensure that older people are at the heart of our council’s activity, we have a dedicated older peoples’ champion.
“Unfortunately our previous Older People’s champion has recently stepped down as a Councillor. We are currently in the process of appointing a new one, until then any queries can be directed to the Customer Services department, where they will transfer you to the appropriate team”.
This ongoing farce typifies WLBC and its neglect of older people. Will any of the “issues under discussion” at the council meeting tonight deliver the statement of there being a WLBC dedicated older peoples’ champion?
