An ageing population is causing a serious supply and demand deficit in UK retirement housing. But investors need better access to the sector.
The proportion of over-65s is set to rise to 20.7 percent of the UK
population by 2027, up from 18.2 percent in 2017, according to the UK
government. At the same time, ARCO, the housing with care industry body,
has set a target of 250,000 over 65s living in housing with care
facilities by 2030.
