StatusCompleted
Consultation summarySeniors Together has been designing and distributing the Forever Active survey since 2012. The results we receive helps us build a full picture of the issues that older people are interested in while also receiving useful feedback on the types of activities and opportunities in retirement that people are involved with. The Executive Group of Seniors Together feel that the data that we receive from the survey helps us to ensure that the wider community of older people in South Lanarkshire play a meaningful part in our project and is another way for older people to have a voice.
BackgroundThe information we receive in the completed questionnaires helps us to inform future priorities and discussion within the Seniors Together project.

What we found outThis 2017/8 survey attracted a total of 378 responses from Older People in the South Lanarkshire area. This respondent base enables Seniors Together to build on the knowledge gained from previous surveys and identify areas of work that should be priorities for the group and its partners. Key areas of interest from the survey are loneliness, the integration of Health and Social Care, health and independence, keeping active, and future planning. Many of these are points of national interest and are at the heart of ensuring older people can remain fit, healthy and active in their local communities.
