Older persons engagement feedback

Kent County Council are working towards our residents ‘having a life, not just a service’. We were keen to discuss with the people across Kent to gain an understanding of what is important to them and to get a good sense of what the people of Kent need in order to feel safe and live happy, meaningful and fulfilled lives.

We spoke to over 200 people over 55 years of age, reaching a wide range of Kent’s older residents, those of different social backgrounds and with ranges of varying personal situations.

As a part of our engagement we spoke to people about their daily activities, what they enjoyed doing and what was truly important to them. We also asked how they received information and how they felt they should receive advice and guidance.
