Over the last two years, the Housing LIN has produced a series of highly-praised videos that put the Spotlight on Extra Care Housing. Thanks to the support of our network, we were able to visit dozens of locations around the country and share the perspectives of some of the people who design, build, manage, work at and – most importantly – live in these schemes.
Collectively, the series has been viewed almost 8500 times, not including screenings at local and national events, and with a continually growing online and social media audience, attracting a twitter following at #ECHvideos.
We want to raise our ambitions and build on the success of these videos to produce a new set of films that delves even deeper into the world of specialist housing for older and vulnerable people, highlighting some of the innovations, projects, professions and personal stories that are crucial to the future success of the sector, but are often overlooked.
Now, we need your help deciding which areas to focus on, where to film, and raising up to £60k to make housing with care go viral.
