Housing in Later Life Survey

Oct 22, 2019

Lichfield District Council has recently launched a project to find out about the housing needs of older people in our district.

Through its Housing in Later Life questionnaire and a number of focus groups, Lichfield District Council is asking local people aged over 60 from across the district for their views on housing. The responses will help inform the Housing Strategy, which will identify what housing is needed for Lichfield District’s older population.

Evidence suggests that older people who want to downsize find it difficult to move house for various reasons. This may be due to a lack of suitable accommodation or just the hassle of moving. If the right type of housing is available, this will give greater quality of life for older residents and also enable larger homes to become available for families and younger generations in the future.

All older residents and recognise that are invited to complete a survey between now and 18 November.

Click Here to download a copy of the questionnaire which can be completed and posted back to the council in a stamped addressed envelope.

Focus groups are planned for the week of 4 November and will take place in the afternoon and evening at venues across Lichfield and Burntwood.

There is also a poster that can be printed off and displayed to further publicise the survey. Click Here to download the poster.
