‘Too Little, Too Late? Housing for an ageing population

A report by Professor Les Mayhew of Cass Business School

‘Too Little, Too Late? Housing for an ageing population’, authored by Professor Les Mayhew, Professor of Statistics at Cass Business School, shows that under-occupation is concentrated among the elderly population where people tend to live in couples or alone.

The report shows that elderly people should be encouraged to downsize, but the lack of age-friendly housing in the UK limits the options for millions who are open to moving but decide to stay.
