Supported and older person's housing case studies

Supported and older person's housing can give people back their dignity.

Over the last few years we have seen some fantastic examples of how housing associations are providing services to help people live safely and independently, alongside the care they need.

We have pulled together some great case studies from around the sector to show you some of the success stories. Please contact us if you have a great story to tell and you'd like it featured on this page.
