Housing our ageing population: plan for implementation

The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Housing and Care for Older People launched an Inquiry in May 2012 to consider progress towards the adoption of the recommendations and the design criteria set out in a progressive report, Housing our Ageing Population: Panel for Innovation (HAPPI), published in December 2009.

The APPG's previous Inquiry, Living Well at Home (2011), concluded that, despite an ageing population in the UK and a growing demand for a range of purpose-built, specialist housing that can accommodate older people's current needs and future aspirations, only modest progress had been achieved.

This Inquiry set out to discover what more might be done to scale up the provision of new forms of housing to accommodate the demand of an ageing UK population. To emphasise the focus on delivery, the APPG has called this report.
