As we grow older: a study of the housing and support needs of older lesbians and gay men

This is the report of research commissioned to explore the housing needs of older lesbians and gay men. It was clear that very little work had been undertaken in this field. The research was carried out in a number of ways: a questionnaire was circulated to networks of older lesbians and gay men; a few interviews were conducted with older lesbians and gay men; public meetings were held in Brighton, Manchester and London; housing providers were interviewed; a survey was carried out of residential care homes and wardens of sheltered housing schemes; literature from the US and Holland was reviewed.
