The Housing LIN has over 40,000 members (May 2016). They are senior staff from social services and housing departments, housing providers in the voluntary and private sector, Clinical Commissioning Group staff, commissioners, consultants, researchers and other stakeholders, including older people and representative organisations. Together we create opportunities to share learning and exchange ideas on innovative practice, and support service improvement on housing with care matters.
The membership is organised into the 10 regional networks (including Wales) and you can get involved in a variety of ways, locally or online. For example:
We hold informal meetings and free events in your region (or signpost to others supported by the Housing LIN) where you can get access to latest policy and practice development, cutting edge research and an opportunity to network with like-minded people. We know that this has led to many new and exciting partnerships.
Find out what's happening in your region in our regular round-up of news, along with links to resources, tools and practice examples that can aid your learning and service improvements.
We publish a weekly bulletin and quarterly newsletter which captures the latest news, views and resources on housing with care matters. In addition, we produce tools and resources to accelerate your learning and keep you up-to-date with the latest market intelligence, funding opportunities and policy and practice developments affecting our sector.
Get better networked with people who are really passionate about housing with care. Post a question, exchange an idea or highlight resources that you have found useful - get connected, share and collaborate with people that care.
Members receive our quarterly e-newsletter "Housing with Care Matters", our weekly "LINks" bulletin, invitations to national and regional events, and can share information with colleagues via our emails and on our discussion forum and regional noticeboards.
