The Housing Associations' Charitable Trust, or HACT for short, work with the housing sector, government, civil society and communities to develop and share innovative approaches to meeting changing needs in the housing sector.
HACT have recently published 'Do the Smart Thing', a report examining the Internet of Things (IoT), and some of the pilots which have been carried out in the Housing sector so far. The report also addresses some of the barriers to its wider implementation, especially in social housing as well as the potential benefits from this technology for residents and communities in Social smart homes.
Join us on the 8th December for a virtual walkthrough of BRE's dementia home, in partnership with the Department for International Trade and the British Embassy in Helsinki https://www.bretrust.org.uk/events/bre-dementia-home-virtual-visit/
"By providing homes based on individuals’ needs rather than solely their ability to pay, social housing helps to keep neighbourhoods diverse and integrated. And it provides the stability people need to build lives and strong communities."
