« on: Oct 10, 2017, 10:19:23 AM »
dear all,
we are a group of London Business School student researching on how to tackle issues habitation for 55+. We would be very grateful if any readers would like to take the time to do the survey at the following link:

this enables us to get a better understanding on what is needed and what could be done to help.


thank you very much

         This is a social chat site and not a focus group and that's a poorly written proposal.

You obviously have an interest in pensioner issues nvdlbs, which has to be good for us.  Will pop over and have a look at the survey.
Never be bullied into silence.  Never allow yourself to be made a victim.  Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself.

Call me cynical but it seems to me you are thinking of setting up a business to do with communal living and are touting for customers.

Co-space living seems to be aimed at young professionals.

When I looked at the survey, they wanted to know a lot of personal information.  There was a logo saying London Business School but no address, phone number etc. etc. it could have been anybody.  Needless to say I didn't fill it in and remain suspicious.

i'm with you Minnie, information is the new gold and can be sold to interested parties, i feel sure that when you fill in any of these things you soon get spammed with crap you have no interest in

I took part in a project run by Sheffield university school of architecture, looking at the type and location of housing older people might want, now and in the future.  DWELL (Designing for Wellbeing in Environments in Later Life) was a group of people, some from specific locations, some from across the city, but all with an interest in housing.


The report might be of interest to the OP.
