Housing and Care for Older People: Defining the Sector


This report by the British Property Federation aims to provide central and local government stakeholders, as well as housing and care sector professionals, an understanding of the housing options available to older people in the UK.

It includes key definitions of care and support and supporting evidence for greater provision of purpose-built housing for older people.

The report concludes with key recommendations of:

  • The government should set up a Housing for Older People Taskforce
  • The government should develop a national strategy for Housing for Older People
  • The priority should be given to projects that work in line with the UK’s ambition for zero carbon
