A new briefing which aims to showcase what housing organisations can do to help older and disabled people to live more independently has been produced by the CIH and Housing LIN.

It aims to share lessons from successful schemes which are helping older and disabled people live with greater independence for as long as possible, stay connected to their local communities and enjoy better levels of wellbeing and care.

It includes case studies from Riverside, Norsecare and Saffron Housing, Rhondda Housing, Johnnie Johnson Housing, Places for People and Look Ahead.

This new briefing underlines CIH and Housing LIN's commitment to the renewed cross-sector memorandum of understanding: Improving health and care through the home, which has been signed by more than 25 government bodies and organisations across the health, social care and housing sectors committed to joint action.
