Diversity Matters

Housing services need to reflect the diversity of local populations. The information in these pages is intended to help service commissioners and providers understand relevant policy and practice issues. The resources listed below include examples of good practice and tools to assess whether the needs of older people from a diverse range of groups are being met.

The Housing LIN is also proud to host and to be a partner of the The Dunhill Medical Trust funded research project, Amar bari, amar jibon’ (My home, my life): developing living environments for Bangladeshi elders, with The Open University and Bangla Housing Association in East London.
