Community support and awareness for older adults looking for or living in housing with care and support

During the Commission, people who draw on care and support told us about the importance of the wider community and services in providing information advice and advocacy, helping older people maintain links with their community, supporting people’s religious activities, connecting and supporting LGBTQ+ older adults, building cross-generational links and supporting those groups with specific or intersectional needs that may ‘fall between the cracks’.

Below are some examples of community support and awareness activities that work with older adults considering, actively looking for or living in housing with care and support.
