Richard Turkington joins the Board of 'Care and Repair England'

Care & Repair England is a small, national charitable organisation set up in 1986 to improve the homes and living conditions of older people. It believes that all older people should be able to live in a decent home of their own choosing and strives to:

Ensure that more older people can live independently and with dignity in their own homes for as long as they wish.

Connect housing, health and social care in ways that improve older people’s whole quality of life.

Work with older people to influence decisions about housing & the related services which affect their lives.

Richard is hoping to contribute his understanding of the housing system and his longstanding experience as a housing researcher.
