Construction has started at two sites in Birmingham on new extracare schemes for older people being developed by Housing 21 and Birmingham City Council with funding from the Homes and Communities Agency (formerly the Housing Corporation).

The apartments are intended to provide an alternative to residential care, giving residents their own home in a communal scheme with 24-hour care and support services should they need them.
