Care & Repair England is setting up a national older people’s housing champion’s network aimed at:
– raising awareness of the scale and nature of the impact of poor and unsuitable housing on older people’s health and wellbeing
– influencing decision making and bring about improvements in policy & practice
Local champions will share practice and keep an eye on the ground in their areas on housing and ageing issues, help to coordinate and stimulate local action and act as a source of local intelligence. Care & Repair England will be offering local champions support on this.
