In their words:

“Downsizing – rather like much else to do with the great achievement of extending longevity – has had a bad press.

By working with people at or approaching the “third age” the team, behind the DWELL report have set out a roadmap that industry,
local authorities and others can use to co-design and
deliver the downsizer (or right sizer) homes that people want.”
