Item from Gilliam Roache, Ward Member - New Housing Options Project Launch

Care and Repair England has recently set up five pilot schemes nationwide to offer Housing Option advice and support to older people.  Age Concern Warwickshire are running two of the pilot schemes.  The target groups are older home owners and tenants living in the privately rented sector who may be considering moving to alternative accommodation.  For those who wish to move, information on housing options in their area is available and, if required, assistance to co-ordinate the practical aspects of moving.  Clients who would prefer to remain in their existing home can be offered advice and information on possible sources of funding which might help them to improve, repair or adapt their home.  The purpose of the new scheme is to offer practical impartial and independent advice to clients to enable them to reach an informed decision on whether to stay or go.

Date of next meeting

Tuesday 9th September 2003 at 8.00 p.m. in the Village Hall.
