[email protected] DISCUSSION FORUM – Future Market Tenure Split



[email protected] DISCUSSION FORUM – Future Market Tenure Split
[email protected] FAQs
[email protected] has proved very popular across many housing and care organisations. The response to the
analysis tool has been most encouraging and proved that there is a gap in the market. [email protected] has
provided detailed information and data on current and future needs and supported the
development of a range of strategies and investment plans.
The free consultations have prompted a number of frequent questions which are answered below.
The list will be developed over time as the project develops.
Q: What is the source of the supply data and how accurate are the figures?
A: The current supply data is taken from the Elderly Accommodation Counsel database and is
updated from market surveys and website data. All users are asked to check their local information
against the data in [email protected] EAC are willing to send out copies of their data to be checked. Please
contact John Galvin on [email protected] to be sent your information.
Q: How were the definitions for the housing sectors agreed?
A: Sheltered housing: Schemes / properties are included where some form of scheme manager
(warden) service is provided on site on a regular basis but where no registered personal care is
provided. A regularly visiting scheme manager service may qualify as long as s/he is available to all
residents when on site. An on-call-only service does not qualify a scheme to be included in sheltered
stats. In most cases schemes will also include traditional shared facilities - a residents' lounge and
possibly laundry and garden.
Enhanced sheltered housing: Schemes / properties are included where service provision is higher
than for sheltered housing but below extra care level. Typically there may be 24/7 staffing cover, at
least one daily meal will be provided and there may be additional shared facilities.
Extra care housing: Schemes / properties are included where care (registered personal care) is
available on site 24/7.
Q: How are the prevalence rates calculated?
A: The prevalence rates are taken from the More Choice Greater Voice report. MCGV considered
the information available from existing data and market trends to confirm a national baseline for
predicting future demand. [email protected] allows the prevalence rates to be varied according to local
strategies and asset management priorities.
Q: Why are the current and future tenure market splits are set to the same figures.
A: Most areas will see a faster development for leasehold properties. However, the rate of
expansion will vary depending on the relative affluence of the area and the current local capacity.

The market split figures must therefore be considered on a local basis and cannot be set nationally
and so a baseline has been given for the market split being retained... For more guidance please see
the information sections of the tool and the note posted on the forum.
Q: When will the 2011 census figures be included in [email protected]
A: ONS have been contacted and they have advised that that the new census data cannot be used to
project to 2030 due to the methodology used. They have advised that the 2010 sub national figures
should still be used. Please see response added to the [email protected] discussion forum.
Q: What does the increased life expectancy drop down tab demonstrate?
A: The increased life expectancy tab considers the reduced demand from old people living longer
and staying healthy for longer. It is assumed that people enter services, registered care or
supported housing certain before they die rather than at a certain age. Therefore if life expectancy
goes up by three years then people enter care or supported housing three years later. This scenario
reduces demand by 18% by 2030.
Q: Can [email protected] predict demand below local authority level?
A: Specific analysis can be undertaken for individual authorities at super out area level. Please
contact [email protected] for further information.
