South East Housing LIN Regional Meeting

Event date

Health and Housing: What does choice look like? What should choice look like?

The event theme has been influenced by the recent Housing LIN report for Brighton and Hove Council, which carried out an older persons' housing needs assessment. We estimated a need for an increased range and volume of housing options for older people; in this report we highlighted older peoples' desire for a wide range of choice when considering housing options in later life.
