Housing and an Ageing Society

Tim Brown was commissioned in 2011 by the Housing Learning and Improvement Network (Housing and LIN) and Keepmoat to produce a report on the ‘extra care solution’.  It draws on research that Tim previously undertook for Hull City Council on best practice for extra care as well as utilising research in the Netherlands and the USA.  The report was launched at a national Chartered Institute of Housing Conference in April 2011.
