- Support the growth of new housing models that support people to age well
- Co-ordinate housing, health and social care capital programmes
- Make sure housing in Wales is of an acceptable standard

“The new 5 year Regional Integration Fund will build on the successes of the Integrated Care Fund by continuing to enable integrated and collaborative working between social services, health, housing, the third sector and independent sectors.
The fund intends to invest in intermediate care settings such as extra care flats and re-enablement ‘step down’ accommodation to support older people to regain independence and prevent admission to a residential care setting.”
