MPs: Ministers Must Focus More On Older People's Housing

Ministers must stop focusing “exclusively” on young first-time buyers and increase the supply of older people’s housing to free up family homes, a report has said. The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Housing and Care for Older People has published a report looking at ways of stimulating both demand for, and supply of, homes for older people.  The report, the latest in the APPG’s Housing Our Ageing Population: Positive Ideas series, makes a number of recommendations to ministers and the sector. It cites work previously commissioned by the APPG showing eight million people over the age of 60 are interested in downsizing. Download the report from the Parliament website.
