Floored: Provision of Appropriate Flooring in Social Housing (Free for members)
We are pleased to come together with TPAS Cymru and Longleigh Foundation to bring you this webinar to look at the provision of appropriate flooring in social housing.
The webinar will go through the excellent reaseach Elizabeth Taylor from Tpas Cymru has done around this subject and look at the impact this has on residents. We will also be joined by Andy Peers from Longleigh Foundation who are a grant-making charitable foundation dedicated to supportint the individuals and communities servied by the social housing sector.
Publishing their joint report - 'FLOORED' - they've found that a lack of flooring or carpet has impacted on tenants' health and wellbeing. Those surveyed listed issues such as a lack of warmth, safety and sound in their homes, health issues, including breathing difficulties, and depression. Responses from tenants with children highlighted safety issues and an increase in isolation and loneliness in not being able to invite friends to visit.
The report, however, also highlighted good practice, whereby some social landlords left existing flooring in place where possible and through a request from a new tenant. Moreover, some landlords were working with organisations to help tenants secure safe and affordable flooring options.
The report contains 10 recommendations for Government and social landlords to consider.
