Loneliness in Older People Report
Enjoyment of life survey 2013
In January 2013, West Sussex County Council’s Public Health Department, working with MSOPC, Age UK West Sussex and Mid Sussex South CVS, issued an Enjoyment of Life Survey to older people living in Mid Sussex as part of its asset based community development research pilot.
One of the key barriers to keeping well and happy was identified as not having access to any information about what was available. Whether you are an organisation or an individual do join MSOPC’s Information Network. In return for your contact details (which are not shared with any other organisation) you will receive regularly a free postal or electronic newsletter. Please use the join us page or ring the help line 01444 242760.
To complement the survey, in February 2013, West Sussex County Council’s Public Health Department held a workshop with MSOPC and other organisations working with older people in Mid Sussex, the focus of which was on those things that make the fifty plus population in Mid Sussex feel well and healthy and also looked at what stops people from participating in those things.
A full report of the survey results and the workshop can be sent by email if you would like one – please use the contact form on this website, or
ring our answerphone 01444 242760 to request a copy.
Since this research has been carried out, MSOPC has delivered, with the help of funders, a large number of Information Roadshows where it joins older people in their local communities in their meetings, taking the information out to them. It also listens (at its Information Roadshows and its public events, and via its answerphone helpline) to what older people have to say about what works well and should continue, and what could be improved, and makes representations, as appropriate, to decision makers.
