We commissioned a deliberative public dialogue as part of our current in-depth inquiry on ageing, to help us to ensure that we are advocating policy changes that are ethical, rational, informed and inclusive of public views and values.

Thinks Insight & Strategy (previously known as BritainThinks), an insight and strategy consultancy, ran this dialogue for us in the summer of 2022. The dialogue involved 24 members of the public and explored people’s views on our draft recommendations and provisional findings on key issues addressed by our in-depth inquiry.
