We are delighted to announce that our CEO, Rebecca Mollart will be chairing Westminster Insight’s Older People’s Housing Digital Conference on September 28th.
The conference will bring together key stakeholders across health, housing and social care to discuss solutions and share best practice to help improve housing options for older people and meet changing needs.
“The UK is only building around 7,000 new sheltered housing properties a year, despite there being demand for at least 30,000 and up to 50,000”*
* Lord Best on the Mayhew Review
Join Westminster Insight’s new Older People’s Housing Digital Conference to hear about the latest regulation, funding and innovation to meet the growing demand of homes specifically purposed for an ageing population.
The Older People’s Housing Taskforce has been launched and the Government has announced increases to funding including the Better Care Fund over the next 2 years. There is growing momentum for health, social care and housing providers to improve the supply and quality of housing for older people.
The practical, half-day conference will cover:
- Working across housing, health and care to deliver sheltered housing and improve housing options for older people
- Updates on the upcoming Supported Housing Bill
- Improving outcomes for people living at home through technology and co-production of services
- Empowering people to live independently for longer
