This new survey will help us continue to build our evidence base on how well older people are living in their homes. It has been well recognised that housing has a profound impact on people’s health and wellbeing. Whether you live in a warm, comfortable house which you can easily move around in or one that is leaky, cold and which you don’t feel fully mobile in, has implications for how well you live and age. In addition to helping Age Scotland with our future work, you also will have the chance to win one of five £50 cash prizes for filling out the survey.
We conduct surveys to gather the views of older people on a variety of issues.
The results inform our responses to consultations and support our efforts to ensure the views of older people are taken into account by policymakers in the government, local councils and other agencies when they are making important decisions affecting older people.
Your views and experiences are really important to us, so please help us find out more about the issues affecting you.

We consult extensively with older people about the issues they are facing. We also undertake research to help uncover where there might be problems and how they can be fixed. This helps shape our influencing work with policymakers and the media on behalf of older people in Scotland.
