This session will look at the main areas for innovation within HAs. This includes opportunities within new builds, the digitalisation of services and, in particular, housing and health.
Our speaker will discuss the Ageing Better programme and its successes in reducing isolation and loneliness in people over 50. As the only HA led bid in the country SYHA led the Ageing Better in Sheffield tender and secured full funding. This successful contract is already highlighting the benefits of early intervention in order to limit dependence on more costly services. Take the opportunity to discuss the outcomes of this programme and to identify what lessons you can learn for innovation in your own areas.
