Specialist community led housing
Tue 30th November
10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Locality: Housing for all – Specialist community led housing
Many community organisations are considering options to develop specialist housing for people in need, including older people, homeless people and those fleeing violence. Development and management issues can include higher build costs, working with specialist care providers, setting affordable rents, and enabling move-on from temporary accommodation.
The session will explore how community organisations are developing specialist housing and will include a case study. RCVDA Community Housing manages housing for people recovering from addiction issues, care leavers and unaccompanied asylum seekers and is developing housing for older people. Mike Milen will share their experiences of managing specialist housing, developing, and building housing and becoming a registered provider.
