LGA Housing Advisers Programme - learning by examples

The Local Government Association's (LGA) Housing Advisers Programme is designed to support councils seeking to innovate in meeting the housing needs of their communities.

In 2019, the Housing LIN were appointed by the LGA to support several councils with transforming the housing, care and support choices for older and vulnerable adults and/or help plan to make improvements to their services.

Some of the participating local authorities have put together case studies on their experiences in undertaking the project and its impact for the benefit of sharing the learning across the sector. Here are 3 of the case studies by councils the Housing LIN has supported. They are: Greater Lincolnshire, Newcastle City Council and Torbay Council.

Greater Lincolnshire - Planning for and delivering to meet the housing needs of an ageing population (opens new window)
