WHY?

The number of new homes suitable for later living being built each year is failing to keep pace with the rapidly ageing population.

This means millions of older people have very little choice when it comes to planning their housing needs for later life. And it can mean that older people have little option but to continue living in a house which is no longer suitable for their needs, where they may be socially isolated and where their home may have become a source of anxiety for the, their friends, and the family.

We want to change that by substantially increasing the volume of specialist housing for older people that is built each year and establish housing for later living as an essential and plentiful part of the overall housing mix.

We believe that the UK should be delivering up to 30,000 such new homes a year to cater for people in later life – the equivalent of a tenth of the Government’s overall annual housing supply target. Currently, only around 6,000 retirement properties a year are being supplied. This is because there is only a small number of specialist retirement housing providers (including the members of Homes for Later Living) currently delivering this form of housing. The UK needs existing providers to do more and other developers to be encouraged into this market space in order to meet demand.
