Views sought on what housing taskforce should consider

Professor Julienne Meyer

Organisations are being invited to provide evidence, insight and advice on what priorities the older people’s housing taskforce should consider.

Both the departments of health and social care, and levelling up, housing and communities are also looking for respondents to share published research and work they have previously developed as part of a call for evidence.

The consultation is aimed at organisations rather than members of the public. The taskforce will be hosting other work to make sure views of people with lived experience are central to its work.

The taskforce has been set up to further understand the market in England for older people’s housing and will make recommendations to ministers next year. It is being chaired by Professor Julienne Meyer and brings together a team of people to support the development of its work.

There are 12.4 million people in Great Britain aged over 65 (18% of the population). By 2041, this is projected to rise to 20.4 million (26%).

The call for evidence closes on Monday 18 September. For more information click here.

Professor Julienne Meyer will be presenting at LaingBuisson’s Retirement Housing conference in September. For more information about the conference click here.
