Inaugural meeting of the Older People’s Housing Task force

The Older People’s Housing task Force held it’s inaugural meeting at Grace House, St John’s Wood on 16th May. Previously the chair of RHG, Richard Morton, was pleased to accept an invitation from DLUHC to join the Task Force, led by Professor Julienne Meyer. Richard said

“The first meeting of the new Task Force for older people’s housing took place this morning with the Housing and Care Ministers both present and giving this their strong personal commitment. I’m delighted both as an architect, and as Chair of RHG that this excellent initiative is on the way, and that the special housing needs of older people are finally being fully recognised. It’s a very strong group of specialists and I look forward to working with them all over the next year.”

The Task Force promises to transform housing options for older people and brings together a team of experts who will report back to Government on how it can improve older people’s housing. A full list of members is available on the government website.
