Creating age-friendly and inclusive homes and communities
This webinar, hosted by the TCPA, highlighted current inspiring approaches from across the UK, collectively addressing the question: ‘How can we create age-friendly and inclusive homes and new communities?’.
As part of our strategic partnership with the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, we have partnered with Manchester School of Architecture on a new approach to understanding the housing choices of those in their 50’s and 60s.
The Rightplace research project builds on our previous work, ‘Rightsizing: reframing the housing offer for older people’ and confirms there is a significant gap between people’s ambitions and the housing choices available to them. The research provides a fresh perspective on older people’s housing needs and choices and the potential policy options that are likely to be most effective in improving choice – both locally and nationally – to create places which support healthier and more enjoyable lives for more people.
Creating change will require collaboration from local planners and central government to housing providers and the third sector. That is why we have brought together this exciting group of speakers to highlight current inspiring approaches from across the UK, and to collectively address the question: ‘How can we create age-friendly and inclusive homes and new communities?’.
This webinar was hosted by the Town and Country Planning Association.
