Building effective local home improvement services: Good Home Hubs
How can we set up information and support hubs that help us improve our homes?
In this briefing, we provide information for areas to deliver a comprehensive one-stop shop service for making improvements to the home for individuals of all tenures. This report is a response to our Good Home Inquiry, which identified the need for local Good Home Hubs for information and support to improve the home.
In order to understand what a Good Home Hub would look like in practice, we have been working with partners, including Lincolnshire County and District Councils and their residents, to scope out the key elements of a Hub and how they should be delivered. This briefing provides a description of the model, with a supporting document that contains practical tools to support implementation with the aspiration that it inspires action at the national and local levels.
This report will be followed by a more detailed review of the steps our partners in Lincolnshire have undertaken towards developing and implementing a Good Home Hub service, along with the feedback received from residents, community organisations and local authorities.
