Archadia Speak at Commons Select Committee

Last week Sophie and Patrick were invited by the Communities and Local Government Committee to give evidence on other models of older peoples housing in connection with the Committee’s inquiry into Housing for Older People. Patrick joined Anna Kear, Executive Director of UK Cohousing Network and Maria Brenton, Cohousing Consultant to the Older Women’s Cohousing Community on the panel. The discussion explored both multigeneraltional and cohousing as viable options for older people but acknowledged the difficulty in scaling community led solutions. The session lasted one hour and can be viewed on the Committee’s website inquiry page.
