Have your say

The Fylde coast’s elderly population are being consulted on whether they feel they have the resources to live active and healthy lives.

Lancashire Fairness Commission, an independent body which aims to reduce inequalities between poor and more affluent areas in Lancashire, is asking older people to fill out a survey on their lifestyle.

The Very Rev Christopher Armstrong, Dean of Blackburn and independent chairman of the Commission, said: “With this survey, we want to hear from the older generation to find out what affect the recession is having on them.

“We’ll be asking about everything from whether people think the economic climate has led to them feeling more lonely and isolated, to whether they feel austerity is making it more difficult to live in their own homes for longer.”
