Providing supported living accommodation

If you’re a property owner, developer, investor, or supported living provider looking to provide supported living accommodation to meet the needs of Leicestershire, we can provide support and guidance to help you meet national and local standards.

Meeting the needs of people in Leicestershire 

Our county has a growing population, with an expected rise of around 85,000 people by the year 2038. This means there is a rise in demand on suitable accommodation, particularly for older people. 

Our ambition is to develop different housing options, including housing with care and accommodation with support schemes, to cater for the wide-ranging and demanding needs of our county. 

By 2037, we want to have developed housing offering different care and community options, in a range of locations for both older adults and working age adults with disabilities.
