Housing for Older People and People with Disabilities
The number of sheltered, very sheltered and medium dependency houses provided by local authorities has increased by 0.8% in the latest year from 20,319 homes in 2020 to 20,500 homes in 2021.
In addition to the housing for older people and people with disabilities provided by councils, councils provide or commission housing support services to help meet specific housing needs of older and other vulnerable people to give them the opportunity to continue to live in their own homes. Housing for people with variable needs is currently mainly classified as very sheltered, sheltered, medium dependency, wheelchair and ambulant disabled, although figures can vary from year to year as dwellings may be adapted to suit the particular needs of tenants, or re-classified by providers.
Further detailed figures are available in the housing for older people and people with disabilities Excel webtables.
