This event has already started. Unfortunately, tickets are no longer available.



The Older People’s Commissioner wants to hear about your experiences of re-connecting with your community as restrictions have changed, and your views on what needs to happen to make sure that older people can do the things that matter to them, and that no-one is left behind as we move forward.

We’d like to invite you to take part in one of our upcoming online focus groups (dates below) to share your experiences, discuss your concerns and help guide the Commissioner’s work.

We particularly want to hear about:

  • Your experiences of getting back out into the community and using places like shops, libraries, community spaces etc.
  • Any concerns or barriers that may have prevented you from getting out and about again.
  • The current situation in terms of any groups / clubs that you are involved with (e.g. forums, social groups, lifelong learning, volunteering) and what plans are in place for the future.
  • What you’d like to see and what needs to happen as we move forward.

We’re also keen to hear about whether the pandemic has changed the ways you now access information and services, as well as the things that you find most helpful when seeking information or when you use websites and apps.

To take part, please register on one of the dates below:

  • Friday 24 September, 2pm-3pm
  • Tuesday 28 September, 3.30pm-4.30pm
  • Thursday 07 October, 11.30am-12.30pm
  • Thursday 14 October, 2pm-3pm

We very much hope you can join us at one of the sessions!
