This paper on the deliberations of the APPG on Housing and Care for Older People was largely authored by Claudia Wood on behalf of the APPG, chaired by Lord Richard Best.
In undertaking this inquiry, the APPG hoped to address the following questions:
• What is the scale of the problem of affordability for retirement housing?
• What action, including through existing financial instruments, can bridge this affordability gap?
• What new measures are needed to enable older people to move to more suitable housing?
