The key aim of this Inquiry has been to consider how we can deliver the types of housing precariously housed individuals and households in, or approaching, retirement want and need to support their life aspirations, wellbeing, participation and inclusion. Based on the findings of three discrete but associated research projects, and targeted consultations with a cross-section of stakeholders involved in alternative housing markets undertaken as a final Inquiry research activity, it is clear that older people now, more than ever, need a more nuanced approach to housing provision if they are going to be able to age well in the ways they desire in communities of their choosing. A broader range of housing options and improvements to existing options are needed.
