Ideas for action: practical ideas to influence local housing policy, plans and action
The Older People’s Housing Champions Group, working in partnership with Care & Repair England and local organisations from different parts of England, has published a series of Ideas for Action guides.
These Ideas for Action guides plus a linked ‘Housing Voices’ film, resource pack and report from Elders Council of Newcastle, working with Skimstone Arts and Northumbria University, offer practical ideas for older people’s groups, forums and organisations who want to influence local housing policy, plans and action.
In particular they highlight pioneering ways to engage with older people whose voices are less often heard.
The guides, film and resources (including contributions from Leeds Older People’s Forum) can all be accessed here.
