Designing the multi-generation kitchen of the future

Our ageing population, combined with socio-economic factors such as the squeeze on income, shortage of affordable housing and the rising cost of childcare and caring for the elderly is fuelling a rise in multi-generational households, including those with three or four generations living under one roof.

On the 21st and 22nd July, the National Innovation Centre for Ageing invited members of the public, including many Voice North members, to share their experiences and consider how the central hub of many homes- the kitchen- will need to be designed in the future to meet the needs and wants of cohabiting generations.

    With the majority of the population living in Social Housing and old/very old housing I feel that this is a dream for the future.
