The discussion paper below collates the findings of 10 ILCs within the ILC Global Alliance on the subject of housing for older people. Coordinated by Monica Ferreira, Co-President of the ILC Global Alliance and President of ILC-South Africa, the research was commissioned to analyse the different policies used globally to provide housing for older people and to illicit best practice examples. The paper intends to begin filling in the gaps of knowledge and sparking debate on the subject of shelter for older people.
Readers are invited to participate in a dialogue on gaps in the discussion paper and in housing provision for this population in general – including views on what constitutes best practice.
