Help us take a sector selfie!

As you know, there has been a lot of change in our sector over the last few years. Supporting People funding has been withdrawn or refocused in many places. Government is putting greater emphasis on preventative services in improving health. New varieties of service have grown up around sheltered housing.

We need your help to take a national ‘sector selfie’ of sheltered and supported housing for older people.  How well are we coping with the changes?  Are cuts killing services or driving efficiency?  Are older people benefiting or struggling to get support?  Please follow this link to complete the erosh sector selfie.  It’s a short online survey that really will only take you about 5 minutes.  It’s your chance to tell us what’s happening to your services and get your views heard by policymakers and politicians.

And please don’t stop there.  If you have already completed it, thanks so much and please do forward the link onto colleagues in other organisations. We want as many providers to complete it as possible whether erosh members or not.  This will help erosh represent the views of our members and the sector, informing our priorities and lobbying.

We’ve had a lot of responses already but we want more! This will give us more data to analyse and more evidence to ‘make the case’ for sheltered and supported housing. We have therefore extended the deadline by another month so the survey will close on Friday 28 November – so don’t delay!
