What we want to achieve
We appreciate that while many people need extra support in older age, they can also bring huge benefits to communities. The UK, along with many other countries, is experiencing a significant demographic shift, with a growing older population. We recognise that while this shift presents challenges, it also offers the opportunity to capitalise on the experiences, wisdom and knowledge of older people.
Our Older People and Housing Programme aims to enable older people to adjust to the challenges of ageing by developing strong connections with family, friends and networks of support in their communities, and to recognise the value of learning new skills and meeting new people.
