Description: The number of people aged 65 years or over in low-income rental households will more than double by 2026. The increased demand from older, low-income households will not be answered by the social housing sector alone. A broader strategy to ensure matching of needs of older people on low incomes to their preferences should address a range of tenure types including private rental and the new affordable private rental housing sector.
