The Strategy for Older People in Wales (2003-2008)

This first strategy identified that over the next 20 years, demographic changes will significantly change the balance of the population and mean that future policies and programmes in Wales must reflect the needs of an ageing society and there was a need to improve the quality, quantity and responsiveness of services for older people.

In related to housing, it stated the need to: "promote an adequate supply of special forms of housing which meet the varying and changing needs of older people and ensure they can remain independent as long as possible".
