This Forum is concerned with all aspects of older people’s housing, from the strategic functions of assessing current and future demand in an area and ensuring that there is appropriate provision, to developing and managing housing that is specifically for older people. This generally involves measures to meet additional needs, whether these be mobility issues, other physical health issues, or mental health concerns of loneliness, isolation and dementia. 


Who is it for
