If you are over 60 and living in Somerset or North Somerset we need you to join our ‘Somerset Older Opinions Matter’ (SOOM) survey group!
Age UK Somerset exists to make life better for older people in Somerset and North Somerset. We started our SOOM Surveys to help us understand and respond to the issues facing local older people so that we can provide the services that are most needed in our area.
We want to make sure local older people's voices are heard.
SOOM surveys are short and anonymous but with plenty of room for respondents to leave comments and suggestions.
The answers given will not only help to shape the services that our charity offers in the future but we hope to empower local older people further by using their collective responses to speak up on their behalf to other local organisations and service providers to make later life better across Somerset and North Somerset.
Of course SOOM will work the best when we have a large number of people taking part so please sign up to be alerted when a new Survey is published! Your opinion is valuable to us!
