Age UK COVID-19 survey

Age UK are conducting research to understand more about how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted on older people’s health and care. We are especially interested to hear how the new restrictions over winter have impacted on older people. 

We are looking to hear from older people themselves but also from friends and family who want to share how the pandemic has impacted on the older people they care about. 

We conducted a similar survey last summer and had a fantastic response, but we know that for many people things have changed or got harder over the winter. If you completed our survey last time we would still love to hear from you again.

We will be using the information you share with us as part of our work to influence Government and to help improve the support which older people receive in relation to health and care. We may publicly use your stories to highlight how the pandemic has affected older people but will not share any personal details about you or any information which might enable people to identify who you are.  Your input will be much appreciated, and you do not need to answer any questions which you are uncomfortable with.
