Who we are

The Housing Learning and Improvement Network (LIN) is a sophisticated network bringing together housing, health and social care professionals in England, Wales, and Scotland to exemplify innovative housing solutions for an ageing population.

Recognised by government and the housing with care sector as a leading ‘knowledge hub’ on specialist housing, our online and regional networked activities:

  • connect people, ideas and resources to inform and improve the range of housing choices that enable older and disabled people live independently
  • share market insight and intelligence on latest funding, research, policy and innovative developments to spread practice faster, and
  • engage with industry to raise the profile of specialist housing with developers, commissioners and providers to plan, design and deliver aspirational housing for an ageing population
