Almshouses for the 21st century: transformation in progress

Almshouses are the oldest form of community-led housing, pre-dating other social housing, care and support for centuries.

This Housing LIN briefing explores partnerships, governance and management initiatives with case studies of new almshouse developments and partnerships with local authorities, private developers and a community land trust.

It provides local authorities, commissioners and other professionals with ideas and examples for working with almshouse charities, to meet housing need and complement local strategies for housing, care and support.
