Sector calls for new task force on housing with care

Sector calls for new task force on housing with care image

The retirement community sector has united to urge the Government to set up a task force on housing with care in order to ‘level up’ for older people.

The Associated Retirement Community Operators (ARCO) argue a more joined-up approach is needed in order to boost the supply of good quality housing-with-care for older people.

ARCO said the task force would bring ‘clarity and consistency’ to regulation that is often ‘conflicting, confused and contradictory’.

Nick Sanderson, chair of ARCO, said: ‘It is clear that we need a much more concerted and intelligent approach to allow this sector to achieve its potential.

'The sector is ready to do its part to growth housing and care options for older people in the UK. We are now asking the Government to play their part too – we need a task force now.’
