Question to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government
To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the future for specialist housing associations which offer properties for older people.
Answer (Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth)
The Government is clear that specialist housing associations offering housing for older people play an important role in providing safe, affordable homes that keep people independent for longer. That’s why our Affordable Homes Programme has committed £400 million to build 8,000 new supported homes by 2020, and the Department of Health and Social Care's Care and Support Specialised Housing (CASSH) fund is investing £200 million to build over 6,000 supported homes.
