Northern Housing Leaders Roundtable: Using digital technology to transform the lives of residents – hosted by Appello

Event: Northern Housing Leaders Roundtable

Date: 08/10/2019

Venue: Albert Sq Chop House, Manchester

Cost: Free  - Invitation Only

 

Digital technology has the capability to transform the delivery of supported housing and care, improving the lives of residents and transforming the delivery of housing services. However, experience and research suggest that housing providers are not currently making the most of technology and digital solutions. Some are leading the way, with many pilot projects and small-scale initiatives; however, mainstream utilisation of technology is not the norm. At the same time, there are some positive stories across the sector - and we are keen to learn from them.

This roundtable will aim to understand the challenges housing providers are facing when embracing technology at scale. It will explore housing provider’s needs, and what partners and suppliers can do to support them to implement technology that benefits their organisation and ultimately, the lives of their residents. It will also celebrate some examples of positive innovation in this area, and highlight any success factors which can be identified.
