This report ascertains whether the recent failure of Southern Cross residential care homes could occur in the extra care housing sector. It provides a market assessment of the state of specialist housing with care for older people, outlines the sector's exposure to fluctuating capital and revenue funding levels in the light of the present economic climate and policy reform. It makes a number of practical suggestions that commissioners, developing organisations and providers of specialised housing should consider as part of their approach to risk management.
