Webinar: Future options for housing and care

Webinar about the SCIE and Dunhill Medical Trust report, Future options for housing and care: Improving housing that facilitates care and support for older people.

Monday 8 March 2021, 10.30 - 11.30 am

Social Care Future, a movement for change in social care, has created an inspiring vision for social care: “We all want to live in the place we call home with the people and things that we love, in communities where we look out for one another, doing the things that matter to us”.

But how can such a vision be realised for people who can no longer live in their own homes or who chose to live in a more supported environment?

Funded by Dunhill Medical Trust, the Commission on the Role of Housing in the Future of Care and Support was launched in October 2020 with the aim of developing a blueprint for the future to enable greater choice and availability of housing and support for older people who may find it difficult to live independently at home, or who choose to live somewhere which provides more support options.

In February, the Commission published a Discussion Paper which provides an overview of some of the critical issues that need to be considered and describes the principles on which future provision should be based. It is meant to pose the judicious questions on which we need to work during the coming months and spark discussion. In the near future, we will also publish a large scale survey by YouGov of public attitudes to housing options for those needing care.
