There is a chronic under-supply of specialist housing to meet the needs of older people in the UK. With industry insiders predicting a shortfall of 400,000 units by 2035, the problem only looks likely to get worse. So what is stopping developers and operators from bridging the gap?

Chaired by Carina Wentzel from our real estate team, Morag Ellis QC (Francis Taylor Building), Andrew Surgenor (CBRE) and Tom Rumble (Woolf Bond Planning) will share their thoughts on:

  • the different products available
  • specific opportunities and challenges associated with delivering housing for older people
  • C2 v C3: how use class categories affect extra care schemes
  • viability and older persons' accommodation
  • investment in the sector and its future
