Health, Housing and Ageing (Housing and Ageing Alliance / Housing LIN)

Summary

Poor housing is estimated to cost the NHS over £600 million per year. This policy paper from the Housing and Ageing Alliance looks at the relationship between health and housing, making suggestions for improvements to address the demographic challenges posed by an ageing population. The evidence is assessed to arrive at recommendations.

“The Housing and Ageing Alliance is made up of a broad spectrum people from local and national organisations working together to bring about improvements to the housing and living conditions of older people. It believes that homes, communities and housing related services should be planned and designed in ways that enable choice, control, inclusion and independence in later life”.
