Why are people asked to complete questionnaires for Wellbeing activities and Life Planning?

We have been funded to test new and innovative ways of providing services for older people. In order to evaluate the effectiveness of our services and prove they are making a positive change, we were asked by the National Lottery Community Fund to carry out a full academic evaluation of our services. So, we ask all participants to complete a before and after survey and, hopefully, this then gives us the evidence we need to prove what we’re doing is working.

Already, we have made fantastic progress, and initial evidence we’ve gathered has shown we are making real positive changes in peoples’ lives. Of course, everything is anonymised, no individual can be identified and we comply strictly with the Data Protection Act. Taking part in our evaluation is not mandatory, but in doing so, participants are helping us improve and continue delivering fantastic services to the rest of Thanet. Thank you to everyone who takes part.

When will your activities be starting again?

We are following government guidance to manage the risk of COVID-19. As we are currently in lockdown, we are unable to resume our face-to-face activities. As soon as restrictions are lifted, and it is safe to do so, we will start our activities again. To find out what online activities we have available, please click on the Activities button in the menu.
