Care & Repair England is developing a range of resources to help with local action. This includes housing information, ‘how to’ guides, training on housing options for older people and general advice on taking local action.

Ideas for local action on housing

Over the last few months Care & Repair England asked older people across the country what their home means to them. The brochure ‘More than Bricks and Mortar’ summarises what older people said and sets an agenda for decision makers in responding to their key messages about ‘home’.

As a result Care & Repair England has drawn out a number of areas for action focused on giving people that little bit of help, providing care and support at home and offering a spectrum of housing.

You may have already taken some local action. This information sheet lists actions taken by local groups that you might find worth considering in your area. The aim is to raise the issues identified in the local area, ask what action is being taken and develop a plan. This might be about a local policy, strategy or practice or developing housing services.
