    • “An effective community-based approach is achieved when Councils and their partners:1. Secure greater cooperation and better use of resources across public services to improve individuals’ and their families experiences, including housing, leisure, culture, transport, health, welfare benefits, employment support, social care and community safety.2. Facilitate a broad range of choice in the local care and support market, including housing options, and personalise the way in which care and support services are delivered wherever people live.3. Work closely with private and social housing providers to continue developing a wide range of options that enable independent living”.“Greater focus on the development of suitable housing and supported- living options will be required in the transition from outmoded models and housing stock”. 5
    • What does ‘Thinking Local, ActingPersonal’ mean for us?• Specifically: Promoting the delivery of a broader range of housing/accommodation designed to offer more supportive living environments to people with care and support needs• An enduring commitment to personalisation – more users empowered to commission their own services. We need a market which can respond (including those who fund their own housing & care)• Emphasis on prevention and community-based care – how will our approach to housing need to respond to this?• Local leaders need to ensure greater co-operation in use of resources and provision of services• ECC - £300,000 to expand the provision6
    • The challenges…Funding pressures:• Central Government funding reductions• Pressures on local government budgets• Challenges for the housing sector - funding, land, building industry• Dilnot Commission has recommended major changes to the funding of adult social care – impact?Demographic pressures:• Older people make up a larger demographic in Essex than nationally, and population as a whole is ageing faster than nationally• Increasing rates of Dementia requiring more sophisticated ways of providing services• Increasing diagnosis of learning disabilities and projected increase in physical impairment7
    • Accommodation Options• Strategic Direction - decrease dependence on residential care solutions and support an increase in people enabled to live independently• This will require a range of accommodation options and services able to meet peoples personalised requirements. What’s new? What do other counties do? More of the same?• Physical environment is vital to the long term success of the prevention agenda – housing needs to enable independence, for example with greater use of Assistive Technology or adaptations8
    • To achieve this… “Here is Edward Bear,coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head, behind Christopher Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming downstairs, but sometimes he feels that there really is another way, if only he could stop bumping for a moment and think of it” A.A. Milne 1926 Illustration E.H.Shepard 192614
    • Today we will …………….• Take a look at Prevention and Housing Housing’s role in building community capacity The future of housing options for older people The Essex approach to Extra Care Local initiatives such as the Housing Brokerage Opportunity to open a dialogue between commissioners and providers – what we can offer each other10
