Housing plays a key role in supporting older people through their later years, to meet their housing requirements at a time in their life when they experience changes to their health and physical needs.

Housing, and housing services, often make the difference between being able to remain active and independent and becoming isolated from their family, friends and communities.

By 2030 one in three people are projected to be aged 55 and over. Older people will be a diverse group, ranging from economically powerful ‘baby boomers’ to over-85s with high care and support needs.  This is already being experienced across the social housing sector and by some Northern Housing Consortium Members, where the nature of residents coming through their doors requiring supported housing and services are rapidly changing, alongside their needs.  The age group they are serving and accommodating under one roof can vary from 55-100 + years, with a mix of physical and mental health requirements, which can prove to be a challenge.

The Northern Housing Consortium would like to invite NHC members to this free focused session facilitated by Patricia Grierson, Head of Independent Living at Johnnie Johnson Housing Trust.

  • What are the challenges experienced by Supported Housing providers and what approaches are being adopted?
  • Explore the challenges of meeting the needs of an ageing population at a time of changing social trends and shifting age profile.
  • Discuss how the sector is responding to this demographic change
  • Approaches adopted to tackle the skills gap of Scheme Managers
  • Share good practice and network.
