On the 18th September 2017, PAiL and Age UK London hosted a joint conference on the issues affecting older Londoners and their concerns and demands relating to housing.
With the Mayor, Sadiq Khan, planning a new London Housing Strategy, this was an opportunity for older Londoners to help shape the future of housing in the capital. The event was held as part of a project funded by Hyde Foundation to explore older people’s views on housing.
The event saw presentations on: Older Home Owners – Adaptations, Repairs, Practical Support and Advice by Jane Minter of Care and Repair England; Older People in Supported/Specialist Housing by Jeremy Porteus of Housing LIN; and the Draft London Housing Strategy.
The debate was introduced by a range of expert speakers from key organisations, before the conference split into feedback groups. You can now download a full summary of our findings from the event here.
