Ideas for action: Older Londoners influencing the Mayor's housing strategy

This 'how to' guide is part of a series produced by Care & Repair England in partnership with the Older People's Champions Group and older people's groups and organisations. The guides offer practical ideas for older people's groups and forums around the country who want to influence local housing policy, plans and actions.

This guide describes the ways that local groups have gone about raising housing issues with decision makers in London, their successes and lessons for others. They also show how local groups have tried different ways to involve a wider range of older people, especially those whose voices are often ignored.
