Big Survey

Have your say in The Big Survey

Let us know about the issues and challenges you face, and where change is needed.

Have your say

The Big Survey explores all areas of life for people over the age of 50 living in Scotland including health and wellbeing, housing, ageism, representation of older people and the impact of COVID-19.

We are excited to be working with researchers from Scotinform to produce our first comprehensive survey of what it is like to grow older in Scotland.

This is a chance for you to have your say on a wide range of topics. We want to get a more in depth understanding of what life is like for older people in Scotland, the issues and challenges you face, and where change is needed.

Tell us what life is like for people over the age of 50 in Scotland, the issues and challenges you face, and where change is needed.

It's our ambition to reach as many people aged 50 and over as possible. We felt now more than ever, it was important to capture exactly what matters most to older people and that’s how The Big Survey got its name. It also covers a range of topics from housing to hobbies and social care to scams and how they matter to you.

The results will give us invaluable information that will not only help us to prioritise our campaign work, but also inform our media and policy responses. 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 as a society.

In addition to helping Age Scotland with our future work, you also will have the chance to win a £50 cash prize for filling out the survey.
