Unlocking the housing market: Helping first time buyers by helping later life buyers

This report by Demos presents the findings and analysis of research exploring both how to stimulate the demand for and supply of older people's housing.

It is strongly solutions focused - with both the Housing White Paper and review of affordable housing and CIL contributions in mind. It presents a series of policy options, discusses the pros and cons, and recommends solutions that on balance are most likely to be effective in supporting older people make the move into retirement housing and - crucially - unblock the supply of retirement housing so that it is capable of meeting such demand.
