Retirement communities are one solution for addressing important issues around housing and care in later life, yet only 0.7% of people aged 65+ in the UK live in specific housing-with-care models. While expanding the supply of such housing faces its own challenges, key factors influence the demand for these schemes.

Trends related to demographic change, finances, and housing-related preferences all play a role in how the sector can evolve into the future. This report considers these and highlights a number of key insights to help the sector stimulate demand.

During this virtual launch event, you will learn more about the report’s findings and recommendations and hear from sector representatives who have been working on the frontline during the coronavirus pandemic.
