Extra Care housing

Information for building developers, providers and partners

Hampshire County Council is stimulating the development of alternative accommodation and care services for vulnerable older people so that they can remain active and as independent for as long as possible.

The establishment of Extra Care schemes is a key part of our commitment to maintain vibrant local neighbourhoods. To meet growing demand, Hampshire County Council has approved a strategy which makes available £45 million of capital funding to support this multi-million pound programme. To deliver the aim of having Extra Care as a viable choice for older people by 2019, Hampshire County Council has agreed to establish a capital fund to facilitate the development of social housing.
