Briefly reports on the findings of a scoping exercise which gathered the views of professionals in 7 Welsh Health Boards, 22 Local Authority and 27 other organisations on their awareness of, and attitudes to, UK government age equality legislation. Questions included whether this would have a direct impact on respondents own job/role; whether the organisations were ready to implement this legislation; barriers to implementation, and whether the legislative framework will have an impact on attitudes and behaviours to ageing.
