Stonewater sponsors Housing LIN

Stonewater has become a Housing LIN corporate sponsor. The Housing Learning and Improvement Network (LIN) is a network that brings together housing, health and social care professionals in England, Wales, and Scotland to explore innovative housing solutions for an ageing population.

This new arrangement will build on our existing relationship to share thought leadership, learning, and improvement from what Housing LIN describes as our “exemplary practice”.

Emma Tobin, Stonewater Head of Wellbeing, said: “We have a well-established relationship with Housing LIN, which has, most recently, seen our two organisations support the INVITE project.

“This investigated how technology could support quality of life for older people — with some fascinating results. By officially joining the Housing LIN network as a corporate sponsor, it means we will be able to continue our work in sharing insight and research, as well as ensuring the sector as a whole can work together collaboratively for the benefit of customers.”

The Housing LIN’s CEO, Jeremy Porteus, commented: “I was privileged to sit on the project board of this study which aimed to explore how assistive and everyday technologies could be used to enhance support for residents of retirement living schemes, a collaboration between the University of Stirling and Stonewater, funded by the Longleigh Foundation.

“I am therefore thrilled that Stonewater has joined the family of Housing LIN sponsors! They have previously participated in many HAPPI Hour webinars, sharing thought leadership, learning, and improvement informed by their management expertise in supported living schemes for older and vulnerable people. We very much look forward to developing this partnership further.”

  • The Housing LIN sponsorship enables them to continue to provide useful tools, resources and examples of innovative approaches to enabling older people and people with disabilities to live well and independently in their own homes. Find out more about Housing LIN.
