PCP research, on behalf of RVS, reveals "Talents go to waste in older age"

PCP conducted a telephone survey on behalf of the Royal Voluntary Service, a charity who offer support and services to the elderly, with 500 people aged 75 or over. The research revealed that one in five older people in Britain who have a special skill or talent rarely or never get to use it. Despite almost a quarter of over 75s having a special talent or skill, 21 per cent of them never get to use it but would like to.

Men are the worst affected with nearly a third (29%) saying they rarely or never get to use their talents or skills, compared to 14 per cent of women.

The research showed that nearly one in ten older (9%) people don’t get the chance to use their skills or talent to benefit the community even though they would like to and 14 per cent say they would like to teach their skill or talent to other people but are not given the opportunity.

According to the research, the top talents and skills older people in Britain have include knitting, art, gardening, engineering and carpentry.
