Join us for this special free event for researchers, policy makers, planners, commissioners, providers & activists with an interest in ageing, health, social care, housing and integrated provision. It is hosted by Care and Repair England, MICRA, and the British Society of Gerontology.
The event will examine the evidence, cutting edge practice and related policy in the field of increasing safe independence at home for older people through practical housing interventions, such as handyperson services. It will highlight innovation and opportunities in the gathering of evidence and the provision of practical housing services for older people. The links between prevention of health and care need and housing interventions will be explored, particularly reducing hospital admissions and extending safe independent living at home, alongside the key role of evidence and the emerging policy landscape.
There is a fantastic line up of contributors, including Department of Health, Centre for Ageing Better, The British Society of Gerontology, Manchester Institute for Collaborative Research on Ageing and University of the West of England, alongside innovative commissioners, local authorities and service providers.

Please note, a specific number of places are being made available for each delegate 'group' (Academic & Research, Policy / Planner / Commissioner, Providers and service users) and so we are asking people to initially send an expression of interest so that we can allocate places fairly.
