Jeremy Porteus

Welcome to #Jeremytalks (opens new window) and our must-read weekly bulletin, HLINks (opens new window), week-ending Friday, 1 October 2021.

This is where you can take a tour of relevant resources and events on later life housing and independent living with regard to homes and communities, health and social care, design and technology, dementia, planning matters and more.

For example, this week, we published a new Housing LIN Case Study exploring Melfield Gardens in Lewisham, a housing scheme winner of a 2021 Housing Design Awards last night!  We also shared a new guest blog by Jon Foster, Director of Service Development, Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing on what it means for social care to be in recovery.

We also highlight a range of items that we think will be of interest to you, including:

We would also like to highlight that we see #HomeshareWeek2021 as an integral part of our #CollaborAGE community chest. You can find a range of reports, guest blogs and case studies on #homesharing, here.

And lastly, join us at next week’s #HAPPIHour with the Archbishops of Canterbury’s and York’s new Commission on Reimagining Care, showcasing a selection of community-based approached to care within a housing context.
