Woman taking a 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.

Housing Survey

It has been well recognised that housing has a profound impact on people‚Äôs health and wellbeing. Our housing survey will help us continue to build our evidence base on how well older people are living in their homes. 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.

Dementia Carers' survey

We are developing workshops for carers of people living with dementia to ensure they know their rights and to get the help they are entitled to. We are looking to hear from carers of people living with dementia to make sure that the workshops cover the most important topics.

Scottish Country Dancing Survey

We are looking to hear from teachers and leaders of Scottish country dancing groups to help with a survey. We will be developing a range of training workshops which aim to make activities inclusive for people living with dementia and one of the areas we are looking at is Scottish country dancing.

Read our reports

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.
