The Big Survey was prepared by Scotinform and Age Scotland and aimed to explore a wide range of areas of life for people aged 50+ living in Scotland including health and wellbeing, housing, ageism, representation of older people and the impact of Covid-19.
Our latest research on the housing needs of older people in Scotland has highlighted a need to increase the availability of accessible and adaptable homes so that people can live well and independently for as long as possible.
We wanted to reflect on the last year and have spotlighted three specific issues which haven't always made headlines but nevertheless have had a profound impact on the lives of older people in Scotland.
With the growing popularity of Walking Football and Walking Netball we want to work in partnership with others to develop more walking sports across Scotland. Read our vision for the future of Walking Sports here.
