Age UK Gloucestershire want older people across the county to have a stronger voice. To that end, we are inviting you to share how you are getting on, tell us how you feel about things at the moment and let us know the issues we should work to do something about. Please help by filling in this quick survey with your own experiences. If you would prefer to give your answers over the phone, you can call free on 0800 2980579 and speak to one of our team during office hours. Your answers will help us understand what matters to you, plan future projects and services, and enable us to ensure the voice and experience of older people get heard. As our way of saying “thank you”, all surveys completed by the 21st August 2020 will be entered into a free draw to win a delicious afternoon tea, delivered safely to your door.
Rob Fountain, Chief Executive Officer Age UK Gloucestershire.
