How can housing meet the needs of older people in future? Join experts from the University of Stirling as they discuss their recent research.

In conjunction with the Scottish Parliament’s Cross-Party Groups on Housing and on Older People, Age and Ageing, Scotland’s Futures Forum is hosting a debate on the future for housing with an ageing population.

Showcasing research produced by experts at the University of Stirling and Heriot-Watt University, the debate will look forward to 2030, our aspirations for housing for older people in the future, and what we have to do now to achieve them.

The research project “Housing and Ageing: Linking strategy to future delivery for Scotland, Wales and England 2030”, funded by the Scottish Universities Insight Institute, used a “serious game” to engage stakeholders in a discussion about the pressures and opportunities in providing housing for Scotland’s growing population.

Join project lead Dr Vikki McCall as she outlines both the innovative approach to the research and the thought-provoking recommendations arising from it.

Chaired by CPG conveners Sandra White MSP and Andy Wightman MSP
