star this property answer text <p>This Government recognises that providing more homes for older people is vital to support an ageing population. Offering older people a better choice of accommodation can help enable them to live independently for longer and help reduce costs to the social care and health systems. The proposals set out in the White Paper, “Fixing our broken housing market”, underline our commitment to do more to provide the homes we need for all in our society</p><p><br> In the White Paper we acknowledged that older and disabled peoples’ housing needs was an issue that needed to be addressed. We have strengthened the revised National Planning Policy Framework, published in July 2018, and on 26 June 2019 we published new guidance to help councils to put these policies in place. This makes it clear that authorities should set clear policies to address the housing needs of groups with particular needs such as older and disabled people. This guidance also sets out the range of options these should consider, from housing with improved accessibility through to more specialised options.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Everyone deserves a decent and safe place to live, and Government is committed to helping older and disabled people to live independently and safely. Over 516,000 local authority homes have been brought up to the Decent Homes Standard since 2010. The Social Housing Green Paper asked whether there are any changes to what constitutes a Decent Home and we are currently considering responses to the consultation. In the National Planning Policy Framework, we have strengthened the policy approach to accessible housing by setting out an expectation that planning policies for housing should make use of the Government’s optional technical standards for accessible and adaptable housing. Additionally, on 25 June the Prime Minister announced that Government will consult on mandating higher accessibility standards for new housing. Through the Disabled Facilities Grant Government also funds the provision of home adaptations to help enable eligible people of all ages to live independently and safely at home. Government has invested more than £2.7 billion into the grant (2012-13 to 2019-20), providing around 280,000 adaptations by the end of 2018-19.</p>
