Mark Child, Swansea Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Social Care, said: “Swansea Council is committed to listening to and working with all our residents no matter their age, but in this survey we are focusing on the 50 plus age group.

“The pandemic has meant that thought needs to be given to how and where we engage with people in this new and unprecedented time of working.
“We want to ensure their voices are heard so that we are delivering the right services at the right time to meet their needs.

“We also want to know about their priorities and aspirations as we continue to work to make Swansea the best place in can be for people to live and work.
“In order to get this right, we need your help to develop mechanisms that are fit for purpose and involve people in decisions that affect them, in quality and meaningful ways.

“This survey aims to ask questions that will help us to do this. If you do not agree, or think we have missed something, please also let us know. What you have to say is very important to us.”

The survey runs until September 17.
