The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Housing and Care for Older People, chaired by Lord Best, has highlighted the benefits of improved housing options for older people. Their 2012 inquiry report, written by Jeremy Porteus – Secretary to the APPG Inquiry and director of the Housing LIN – is the result of a five month inquiry into the progress in implementing the recommendations and design criteria set out in the landmark HAPPI (1) report.

The APPG inquiry found there were far reaching benefits from developing good quality housing for older people, including a reduction in health and social care costs, as well as the freeing up of family housing and has made a series of recommendations to create movement in the housing market, improve the health of older people and create new housing options for younger people and families.
