This project will look at the role of older people’s housing and housing-related care issues in England's regional strategy, and consider how the relatively low priority given to these concerns can be overcome.

This project brings together representatives from the Department of Health, Communities and Local Government, the Retirement Housing Group, the South East Public Health Group, the Town and Country Planning Association, the National Housing Federation and Help the Aged.

Outcomes are expected to be an extended think-piece, which will be produced in conjunction with the expected National Strategy on Ageing, and a series of regional seminars.

For more information on the project, please contact Ed Harding, Senior Researcher at the ILC-UK.
