As one of the first location partners of Connected Places Catapult’s Homes for Healthy Ageing programme, Sunderland City Council along with seven innovative SMEs, has partnered to trial and test technologies and innovations to tackle critical challenges in the home, namely: cold, poor air quality and fuel poverty.
With poor housing costing the NHS £1.4 billion per year, the quality of our homes has a critical role to play in our health and wellbeing. Innovation and technology can play an important role in identifying and solving many of these challenges.
Come along on 24th June for an opportunity to network and learn more about the Homes for Healthy Ageing Programme, the solutions tested, and insights from the testbed.
