Influencing Policy and Operations: outcomes from the ECHO research project
The Provision of Social Care in Extra Care Housing Project (ECHO) was a
two year study funded by the Department of Health, National Institute
for Health Research, School for Social Care Research (DH NIHR SSCR). The
project started in October 2015 and its broad aim was to explore how
care is negotiated and delivered in extra care housing schemes for older
As part of our ‘Spotlight on Extra Care’ video series, the Housing LIN
have produced two videos documenting findings from the research team.
This film (2 of 2) looks at the findings from speaking to those involved
in the strategic and operational side of extra care housing, based on
interviews with commissioners, managers and frontline care workers. It
also explores the ways in which these findings could be used to
influence policy and practice, as well as how the outcomes from the
project might form the basis of future research.
