About Homes for Healthy Ageing Programme – SME Open Call Announcement 2022
Connected Places Catapult’s Homes for Healthy Ageing programme aims to demonstrate the role that innovation, collaboration, and a human-centred approach can play in accelerating the development of healthy, age-friendly homes and neighbourhoods. We are currently demonstrating the impact of this approach with testbeds in Sunderland and Northern Ireland, where partners have been trialling solutions to overcome Cold and Damp Homes and Social Isolation and Loneliness, respectively, within their local testbeds.
We will be launching a new open call for the programme’s upcoming testbed phase on July 19th, with our three new location partners:
- Leeds City Council: Integration of innovation to tackle root causes of loss of independence in ageing communities
- University of Brighton and Brighton & Hove City Council: Trialling innovative approaches to reduce health inequalities and build resilience in carers and those they care for
- Essex County Council: Harnessing innovation to improve efficiencies and communication in care provision to people in their homes in rural areas
The Catapult will provide funding and expertise to find and test innovative solutions to local challenges around healthy ageing. The testbed will begin in October 2022 and terminate in March 2023.
