Rising costs for housing and an ageing population mean the UK faces a £30bn funding requirement in 2025.

A generation of Baby Boomers in retirement will require an additional 75,000 later living homes and 30,000 care home beds, over the next four years, JLL research has found.

This £30bn challenge, to supply enough homes to maintain the same level of provision for the ageing population, comes as alongside an anticipated £25bn bill to fund the care home industry.

The numbers show the true scale of the crisis in housing for older people and are a call to action to the government and the industry.
