A directory for promoting social wellbeing in Extra Care housing and other settings

This directory was updated in January 2010 by Lisa Callaghan, Research Officer, PSSRU

This directory presents ideas for good practice in promoting social well-being grouped into five themes: general considerations; social interaction; design and planning; funding issues and models of care. Where appropriate, these ideas for good practice are supported by signposts to further information, such as the Housing Learning and Improvement Network website.

Developed by Simon Evans, Senior Research Fellow, University of the West of England, Bristol & Sarah Vallelly, Research Manager, Housing 21. It is aimed at people from many different backgrounds, including older people, informal carers, commissioners, planners, managers and architects.
