The Centre for Ageing Better has published the results of its Good Home Inquiry which found that that there was backing amongst the public for ‘one stop shop’ local housing hubs that would provide people with information and advice on how to make home repairs and improvements.
Many participants in workshops carried out for the inquiry said that organising repairs or improvements and finding trustworthy tradespeople to carry out the works felt overwhelming. Participants also called for greater regulation of rental properties in poor condition, and targeted investment from government in parts of the country with large numbers of poor-quality homes to help residents finance improvements.
