Home truths - Housing options and advice for people in later life: Learning from communities in Leeds

A person’s home is more than the building alone. Being connected to others is fundamental to a happy life at any age, and the environment around our homes must enable all generations to feel a sense of belonging to their local communities and to remain active and connected to others. In order to understand how in practice people can be better supported to make planned and informed choices about their housing options we chose to explore the current landscape in Leeds. This report summarises the findings from our work in Leeds and, based on these insights, makes recommendations for what local areas and national government can do to enable people in later life better access to information and advice about housing.
