This Housing LIN Case Study no 117 focuses on the benefits that effective partnership working brings to new extra care schemes.
It specifically looks at North Wales Housing's second extra care housing scheme in Abergele, Conwy. Drawing on what key stakeholders offered to the process and learning from each stage of the development to get a better understanding of what made the partnership work.
This process also included designing for inclusion of older people, those with physical disabilities or sensory impairment and learning disabilities in mind.
Lessons learnt from what worked well from previous extra care housing schemes developed and managed by North Wales Housing Association have also been taken into account and have contributed to the ongoing learning.
