Strategic Housing for Older People Analysis Tool - SHOP@
An essential online tool to take the strain out of forecasting and meeting demand for specialist housing for older people in England and Wales, endorsed by the Department of Health and the Welsh Government.
SHOP@ supports you to prioritise the future housing needs for older people by enabling you to either enter your data on the demand for specialist accommodation for older people (including sheltered housing, extra care housing and residential) or benchmark against a selection of other indicators.
And further to recent policy and funding (capital and revenue) announcements, if you would like to commission the Housing LIN for more detailed analysis as part of a strategic review of the supply of housing for older people or future modelling of provision in your area, find out more about our SHOP@ consultancy service
SHOP AT Testimonial
"Appropriate housing underpins the health and wellbeing of older people, promotes independence and reduces demand on health and social care services. Research shows there is already a significant shortfall in specialist housing units across England. Without swift and well-planned action that situation will deteriorate as our population ages.
This tool hits all the buttons! It can help local authorities and our partners work together to identify and fill a shortfall of specialist housing for older people and meet new demand from our ageing population."
