The Serious Games Toolkit image

This toolkit is designed to support local areas in creating a business case for housing for older people. 

It was published alongside the findings from a pilot study of a ‘Serious Game’ called Hopetown, an innovative tool for developing local housing partnerships, funded by the Dunhill Medical Trust and led by the Social Care Institute for Excellence in partnership with Socialudo, United St Saviour's Charity and Housing LIN.

It is designed to be flexible around the needs, context and existing strategies, policies and structures within a local area. It can be taken as a whole or different steps can be used to guide individual activities.

This toolkit is funded by the Department of Health and Social Care, and is designed to support local areas, strategically and methodically, in thinking about and creating their plans for housing for older adults.
