Voices on well-being, A report on resaerch with older people.
This report will present an overview of the findings from work conducted between January and May 2011. This involved a UK wide consultation with older people (ages 65 +) around the important concept of well-being. We worked hard to access, engage and include a diverse range of older people. We do not claim that the participants are representative of all older people. Nonetheless, they reflect the views of a diverse range of older people both within and outside WRVS, service users and carers, volunteers and activists. Most importantly, these voices include their understandings of well-being, their interpretations of what shapes it, their experiences of services, the barriers they encounter and their suggestions for change.
