Research released by Sheffield Hallam University and the University of Sheffield is providing new insights into the issue of older people's housing.

Researchers suggest there will be major shortages in specialist housing in many local authorities in coming years.

The research uses national data from the Elderly accommodation Counsel about the majority of older people's housing schemes in England.

Looking specifically at the local authorities with the highest level of supply, it explored some of the associated factors and how future social and demographic trends will affect demand for such housing in local areas.

The research has led to the creation of a new tool called the Housing for Older People Supply Recommendations (HOPSR), which can be accessed for free via this link.
