RightPlace Research Project

Manchester Metropolitan University and the Centre for Ageing Better are launching a new survey to better understand older people’s views about the homes and communities they live in. The survey is part of the ‘RightPlace’ programme, which aims to investigate the reasons why some older people want to move home in later life, while other choose to remain in their current home as they grow older.

The survey will be used to provide better information for local and national government, housing associations and property developers. It aims to highlight opportunities to improve the housing offer for older people who want to move, and to inform programmes supporting others to ‘age in place’ within their current homes and neighbourhoods.

The survey can be completed online (on your phone, tablet or computer) and should take no more than 20 minutes to complete. It is open to anyone in England aged 55 and over and is entirely anonymous. If you are interested in participating, please click on the link below.
