This paper reports an investigation into the provision of information on social benefits and sevices to the elderly. It was found that most agencies rely heavily on leaflets. A selection of these were evaluated and most were found to be difficult, dull and confusing; a survey of elderly people revealed that few could recall seeing them, and few professionals used them. The survey also showed that the most house-bound were the least well-informed and contact with family, friends, doctors and social workers did not improve matters. One conclusion was that much money is spent on information which is seen by just a few.
