Residents to have their say on ‘what matters most to older people’

137-two-old-ladies-chattingBlaby residents are being asked for their views on what services they think are the most important to help people to age well in Blaby.

Residents’ views, alongside the views of members of the Blaby District Over 50s Forum and local partners who provide services for older people, will be used to help to determine the priorities that will help Blaby District Council and other partner organisations to address the needs of its ageing population.

Jon Wells, Regulatory & Leisure Services Group Manager said:

“It’s really important that we get as many residents’ views as possible to ensure we focus our resources on the things that matter most. We want to encourage as many people as possible to fill in the questionnaire to help us to do that.”

Residents can get involved by completing the survey on line at www.blaby.gov.uk/ageing-well/ before 1st May.

Paper copies will also be available at Blaby District Council offices, libraries and other key community buildings during the consultation period.

The results of the survey will directly shape the Ageing Well Strategy for Blaby District.
