Future options for housing and care

Improving housing that facilitates care and support for older people

This is the first report of the Commission on the Role of Housing in the Future of Care and Support. Co-produced with people with lived experience and senior figures in the health, social care and housing sectors, it aims to provide a short overview of the key issues facing the sector, an initial vision for the future and some preliminary ideas which the Commission believes merit further exploration. It poses some questions which the Commission believes are critical for its remaining work to address.

The Commission on the Role of Housing in the Future of Care and Support was launched in October 2020 and will present a blueprint for the future to enable greater choice and availability of housing and support for older people who may find it difficult to live independently at home, or who choose to live somewhere which provides more support options.
