CLASP Launches ‘Over-50s Services’ Survey 

CLASP is conducting two surveys on services for older people (for the purposes of this survey this means people over 50).

The first is for anyone aged over 50 to complete. The second is for those supporting older people. The surveys are completed on line, and accessed by clicking the appropriate link or graphic below.

 

Survey 1. If you are over 50 and living in North Ayrshire, please take a few minutes to complete this short survey to help us design support services to best suit your needs.

Please share the survey with your friends and family so that as many over 50s as possible get the opportunity to contribute to this important survey. If you know someone over 50 who can’t access the on line survey, you can complete it on their behalf. Alternatively contact info@clasps.org.uk and one of our wonderful team will arrange to call and complete it for you.

Survey 2: This short survey is for people employed in supporting people over 50 living in North Ayrshire. If this is you, please could you take a few minutes to complete the survey to help with the design of support services to best suit the needs of the community?

Please share the survey with colleagues to help get maximum feedback.
