Through the Ageing Society Grand Challenge, a £2.5 million competition has been developed. This will reward new ideas that lead to innovation in design and delivery of age friendly housing, that addresses the needs of an ageing population. A team led by the Building Research Establishment has recently been appointed to work with Government as the competition delivery partner and the competition itself is scheduled to be launched in late 2019.
