Getting it right for rural communities

Cover Case study 87 Eden

This Housing LIN Case Study No 87 describes the transformation and development work of Eden Housing Association (EHA) in rural Cumbria, to reshape its housing support services for older people, and to develop a wider independent living offer.

Written by Jean Bray of Peter Fletcher Associates, and our North West Housing LIN regional lead, this case study sets out why the service was developed, the journey from planning to implementation and what achievements have been made. It also examines customer feedback and offers learning points for other organisations who are considering developing a similar service.
