Our housing stock is among the oldest in Europe with some of the highest associated health and care costs. Most people want to remain in their own home, but current housing stock is not suitable for us as we get older.
Safe, good quality homes that meet our needs can maintain or improve our physical and mental health, wellbeing and social connections. Affordable housing is also essential to people’s financial security.
Our aim is for more people to enter later life in safe and accessible homes that will support them to live independently for as long as possible by:
Existing homes: Improving the condition and accessibility of existing housing
New homes: Increasing the diversity of suitable homes for people approaching later life who choose to move
