Local Integrated Service Trusts - A Sustainable Funding Model to Deliver Extra Care Housing?

With a recent Social Care White Paper setting out a new direction for adult social care, this Housing LIN Viewpoint no 27 explains how Local Integrated Service Trusts could provide a sustainable vehicle for effective joint ventures between local authorities, social housing providers, charities and the private sector to develop capacity and investment in care at home in extra care housing. It draws on a round table discussion recently hosted by Bevan Brittan LLP which explored the scope for "Mission Investment" to help meet the challenges of funding housing for older people and people with long term conditions.
