What is the Retirement Housing Group (RHG)?

The Retirement Housing Group is a membership organisation working in the property industry.

Its aim is to increase housing choices for older people by advancing and promoting the case for sustainable retirement housing.

It has been an independent industry body since 2011.

What does RHG do?

It works nationally and locally, RHG’s focus is on raising the profile of retirement housing and tackling barriers to increase the supply, range and quality of accommodation for older people.

Key activities include influencing planning, housing, legal and housing management policy by bringing issues and solutions to the opinion formers.

RHG has led on producing industry good practice guidance, codes of practice and toolkits and continues to act as a collective voice influencing policy nationally and locally.

How does it do it?

RHG has four main areas of activity:-

  • Developing strategic input to national and local policy affecting the retirement housing sector based on members’ experience.
  • Engaging with decision-makers to influence policy issues.
  • Publishing reports and briefings on key issues to support members in developing their own schemes and practice.
  • Developing toolkits for our members, notably a sector-specific housing needs assessment model enabling assessment of the local level of demand for housing by older people across all tenures.

Who is RHG for?

Membership is open to all private and public sector bodies right across the retirement property industry. Our members are all focused on improving the supply and quality of housing for sale and rent for people of, or approaching, retirement age. Many members are also involved in planning, development, building, design, and management of accommodation as well as the provision of advice for older people.
