Positive Ageing in London and Age UK London invite you to an event on 18 September on the issues s affecting older Londoners and their concerns and demands relating to Housing.
At the moment housing is in crisis in London and the UK. Where are the new houses going to come from? What housing is available or being built for older and retired people? Where and when will affordable housing be made available to the hundreds of thousands in need of decent, secure, affordable housing in this city? How will older people living in tower blocks be given the safe and secure housing they need? These and other questions will be addressed at this conference.
With the Mayor, Sadiq Khan, planning a new London Housing Strategy, come along and tell us what the policies should be for housing in London, in particular as they impact on and affect older Londoners
The debate will be introduced by a range of expert speakers from key organisations talking about the situation at present affecting owner occupiers, private, social and council housing tenants, as well as those in social care homes – both private and public.
This will be followed by group discussions leading to agreed key principles and demands that older people from all types of housing tenure in London and will be forwarded to the Mayor and GLA
We are holding this event as part of a project funded by Hyde Foundation to explore older people’s views on housing.
The event will be held at 336 Brixton Road, London, SW9 7AA, from 10.00 (Registration) to 3.30, with a light lunch available.
