Age Scotland has asked for your help with their recently launched Big Survey – see below for details –

Age Scotland works closely with the Scottish Government, politicians, the media, and policy makers to provide data and insight into how older people experience many aspects of their lives.

That’s why we’re launching the Big Survey, which will ask about a range of topics to give us a greater understanding of what it’s like to be an older person living in Scotland today. It also asks how people have been coping during the coronavirus pandemic, giving us a real sense of what is working and what further resources are needed as we continue to live with and recover from coronavirus.

We’ll use the findings to priorities what issues we campaign on, and it will help construct our media and policy responses. It’s also envisaged that this survey will be repeated every two years to enable us to track any trends or patterns.

Our ambition is to reach as many people aged 50 and over as possible and we would be very grateful to you if you could complete it and it only takes around 10 minutes. 

Thank you.
