This July, we were delighted to present the prestigious Aneurin Bevan shield to the winning team at the Over 75s World Cup match between Wales and England at St George’s Park.


This fixture, hosted by the Wales Veterans’ Football Association, honored ‘Nye’ Bevan, the founder of the NHS. It was a proud moment for the Bevan Commission to support this memorable day, celebrating veteran athletes and this fantastic initiative to support healthy and social ageing.

As our population grows older, this initiative exemplifies the kind of action required to enable healthy and happy ageing, reducing illness, care needs and the stigma around older people’s health.

In our Foundations For The Future Model Of Health And Care In Wales we unpack the importance of health ageing along with other crucial priorities for addressing the needs of our population now and in the future.
