Housing LIN post-conference report of the inaugural Extra Care Housing event held on 1 May at the Mercure Hotel, Swindon (opens new window).
The event took a panoramic view of the policy and practice landscape to get a better picture of the future direction of housing, care and support for older people. And with high profile speakers and plenty of opportunity for debate and questions amongst the 100+ Housing LIN members, the conference also focussed in on the "burning issues" facing the region. In particular, in relation to predicting future demand and supply, inward investment opportunities, examples of innovative practice, affordability and budget cuts, and forging new partnerships with the private sector and across housing, health and social care.
The report contains a full account of the day with links to presentations and relevant accompanying resources, along with the Housing LIN's vision for developing a regional Manifesto and realising our ambition.
