The Housing and Ageing Alliance
The Housing and Ageing Alliance is made up of a broad spectrum of people from local and national organisations working together with a single objective; to bring about improvements to the housing and living conditions of older people.
It believes that homes, communities and housing related services should be planned and designed in ways that enable choice, control, inclusion and independence in later life.
At a time of unprecedented demographic change, creating age-friendly homes and neighbourhood where people can live well, lead fulfilling lives, involved with family, friends and their local community has never been more important.
