Dementia pathways: housing's role

During 2016, CIH Scotland commissioned housing consultancy Arneil Johnston to deliver the second phase of its housing and dementia programme. The research mapped out the role of housing staff and services across four key interactions (pathways), which form important stages of the dementia journey.

The key research findings are available to download here.


Developing effective tenant scrutiny

The Stepping Up to Scrutiny (SU2S) training and learning programme was first launched in 2013. It was delivered on behalf of the Scottish Government through a partnership between CIH Scotland and HouseMark Scotland. You can find further information about the programme here.
