The Alliance Transport Working Group had hoped that this survey would attract a large response through it's network of older people organisations. Unfortunately response was limited with the result that numbers are too small to be statistically valid. We make the responses available here as they are interesting, and there is currently so little hard information available. We would like to take this oppertunity to thank all those that took the time to complete the survey. Mobility Survey Responses Table
The Age Action Alliance Transport Working Group is assisting the Department of Transport to obtain information it is lacking for its review of Mobility Vehicles. We have put together a short survey which we hope you can distribute through your networks. The Survey is designed to be completed by users (or their relatives) and aims to collect the information required by the Department through a series of tick boxes. The survey is designed to be completed electronically, but can easily be printed and completed manually by anyone without access to a computer. Please see Mobility Survey Introduction for details and complete the survey at Mobility Vehicle Survey. The Working Group has also agreed to promote a Mobility Vehicle survey looking at a snapshot of current users, which is being conducted by University College London (UCL). Please see UCL Mobility Vehicle Introduction for details and complete their survey at UCL Mobility Vehicle Survey.
The Working Group has identified the need to examine evidence on the barriers to access for older people and ways of overcoming them. Professor Roger Mackett of University College London who chairs the Transport Working Group of the Age Action Alliance has produced this report that assembles the evidence including information on the capabilities of older people.
