‘Are Housing Associations ready for an ageing population? – Report Launch and Debate
In association with Genesis Housing Association
Wednesday 14th January 2015
0930hrs to 1100hrs, Central London venue
The event will see the launch of a major new report on whether housing associations are ready for the challenges presented by our ageing population. The report addresses the future housing needs of older people and the role of housing associations in providing supported accommodation and care. It examines these challenges over the medium term investment horizon to the 2030s. In particular, it explores what the older population will be like at that time, what housing association boards should be thinking about now, and what the sector and government need to do to realise the opportunities and manage the risks associated with older people’s housing. The report also considers how the links between housing, health and social care can be improved, and asks if housing providers understand the expectations and aspirations of their tenants as they grow older.
