A report on Housing for Older People recommends that the wider availability of housing advice and information should be central to a national strategy. The report calls on the Government to recognise the link between homes and health and also recommends that the National Planning Policy Framework be amended to encourage the development of more housing for older people, and that councils identify a target proportion of new housing to be developed for this purpose.

New homes, the report recommends, should be accessible and adaptable  so that they are ‘age proofed’ and can meet the current and future needs of older people.
