The research was initiated by BSL to evaluate their current retail offering through the eyes of their customers. Consequently, the ACRS undertook secondary research, a competitor analysis (focusing on three competitors selected by BSL), a financial analysis and a customer questionnaire. The customer questionnaire formed the major component of this research. The purpose of the questionnaire was to identify who BSL customers are, to determine customer perceptions regarding BSL stores, discover the reasons why customers shop at BSL stores, and understand the factors that influence how often customers shop and how much they spend. These results will enable BSL to increase customer satisfaction and to enhance the shopping experience within BSL stores. Further it can be used to form strategies aimed at increasing the number of times customers shop at and the amount they spend per transaction.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (2), BSL Archives (1).

Good neighbours : measuring quality of life in older age /

by Watson, Jessica (ed.) | The International Longevity Centre UK | Sinclair, David (ed.).

Publisher: London, U.K. The International Longevity Centre 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: February 2011 Bibliography : p. 13Summary: Increasing numbers of older people, higher expectations for 'a good life', and demands on health and social care services, have led to international interest in improving and measuring quality of life (QoL) in older age. Yet whilst QoL is a subjective concept, most attempts to measure it have been largely based on 'expert' opinions. As a result we may not have been measuring the right things when we review the QoL of older people. In addition, if the expert led measures of QoL don't measure the right things, policy makers may end up making the wrong policy interventions. Since 1999, research on QoL, which was funded by UK research councils, has allowed us to explore the potential for a new measure of QoL, based on the priorities of older people. Face-to-face interview surveys have explored older peoples' definitions of, and priorities for, QoL, and enabled the development of a measure of QoL based directly on their views.Availability: (1)
