Housing LIN has launched two videos that focus on a project that explores how care is negotiated and provided in extra care housing schemes for older people.

Undertaken by researchers from the universities of Bristol, Worcester and Kent, the ECHO project's first film -'Listening to residents in extra care housing: findings from the ECHO research project - documents the key objective of the ECHO project, to gain residents' first-hand perspective on living within their extra care scheme.

The second video - Influencing policy and operations: outcomes from the ECHO research project - looks into the ECHO project's more professional approach, documenting the findings of dialogue between commissioners and managers from extra care housing schemes.

The above link gives access to both videos. p>*****
