Invited to attend a stakeholder event by Care and Repair England: 'How can we demonstrate, through better evidence for policy makers and commissioners, that home adaptations & modifications are a good 'investment'?'

Activity: OtherPublic engagement and outreach (social community and cultural engagement)


Care & Repair England, organising a 'Bletchley Day', along the lines of a sandpit, with the aim of forging new partnerships and stimulating fresh research through bringing together leading researchers in the field of home adaptations/ housing interventions and key stakeholders (service providers and policy makers) (See Appendix 2 for the Event Programme). The aim was to create clusters of researchers and stakeholders who have a common interest in this field, who will develop research proposals to fill a particular evidence gap and then work together to seek out funding opportunities to enable this research to take place.
