Welcome to #Jeremytalks (opens new window) and our must-read weekly bulletin, HLINks (opens new window), week-ending Friday, 4th June 2021.  

This week we published a new Housing LIN case study on Octavia housing association's End of Life Care in extra care housing project with partner St Christopher's Hospice. And, in our first HAPPI Hour session of the month, we heard from the partners about their Better Care, Better Endings project at yesterday afternoon's HAPPI Hour webinar. We were also joined by speakers from NHS England's Anticipatory Care team on the forthcoming community health framework and ADASS’ housing policy co-chair exploring how to better engage and integrate with housing. Check out this session and our exciting June programme on our Forthcoming Events webpage. Register now!

We also released a guest blog by Matter Architectures' Roland Karthaus on the ethos of care prompted by last month's The Regeneration Game HAPPI Hour and the presentation by Igloo Regeneration's John Nordon.

You can also take a tour of other news and events on later life housing and independent living with regard to homes and communities, health and social care, design and technology, planning matters and more. For example, we highlight a range of items that we think will be of interest to you, including a new report by King’s College London (opens new window) that offers a pre-Covid snapshot of day centres in south London and a survey by the IMPACT project (opens new window) that the Housing LIN is associated with at the University of Birmingham in which they want to get your views of anyone connected with or working in adult social care.
