Older persons housing strategy
How the strategy was developed
This strategy has been developed by undertaking a review of older people's housing and support services in the borough, listening to the views and aspirations of our residents and looking at the current national and regional context.
- A borough wide survey of residents over 50 yrs.
- Consultation with key stakeholder groups such as the interfaith group, ethnic and other minority groups and groups representing those with disabilities.
- Individual discussions on housing issues with residents at Welwyn Garden City Central Library.
- Focus groups.
- A review of information, research, statistical data and trends around the ageing population, demographics, health and housing.
