From u3a National Office: 

As part of our work to challenge negative stereotypes around age and promote positive ageing, u3a has joined forces with This Age Thing and The Design Age Institute at the Royal College of Art to help identify those everyday items in our homes that we find most irritating. Poor design is making our lives more difficult and we want to do something about it.

Your feedback was so valuable in reviewing the design of Walking Frames earlier in the year – thank you. We will keep you up to date with how that piece of work is progressing.  Again, this is an opportunity for us together, to put older adult voices at the heart of design and make everyday objects more usable, more useful and more desirable for all us.

Please take part in the survey below and as always, thank you for your time, commitment and enthusiasm all of which helps to make the u3a such a special movement.
