Why Later Living?

The population of over 85s in the UK is expected to double between 2018-2030 – increasing the overall supply of housing in the UK is critical. The demand for older people’s housing is set to rise as the elderly population increases at a notable rate.

We need to address this under-supply of housing designed and built for those over the age of 65.

What’s more, the development of later living apartments not only addresses the need for accommodation for older people – as people downsize, it frees up larger, family housing accommodation that is in short supply, which helps tackle the wider housing shortfall.
