The Housing LIN is proud to partner with this important University of Stirling-led research project and we encourage our members to complete this survey.
ABOUT THE DESHCA PROJECT
Designing Homes for Healthy Cognitive Ageing (DesHCA) is a UKRI funded research project based at the University of Stirling that explores the different ways people’s homes can be built or adapted support them as they age.
Their research involves working alongside people from different walks of life, industry backgrounds, and professional settings to examine how adapting existing homes could help older people in the here and now, as we work alongside architects and builders to design more supportive homes for the future.
ABOUT THIS EDELPHI SURVEY
They’re eager to hear from professionals living in the UK about what they think matters most when we’re talking about designing supportive housing.
• How should a supportive house make people feel?
• what should it help them to do?
• And what does that mean for how we create, supply, and manage the homes of the future?
This survey was built using the responses to an earlier, exploratory survey where they asked volunteers to tell them how they thought different groups might benefit from creating more supportive housing in the UK.
TAKE PART IN SURVEY
That’s where you come in. They want you to take part in their eDelphi exercise – a series of three 10-minute surveys over the next three months to help them learn more about the things that matter to you.
If you have 10 minutes to spare and want to make your voice heard, take the 1st survey here.
