FUNDING THAT CAN TRANSFORM SOCIETY
Here at Longleigh, our social mission is to support transformation in the lives of the residents and communities served by the social housing sector.
Through our Individual Grants, we can do this a life-at-a-time and, through our Project Grants, a community-at-a-time.
It’s through our Research Grants that we can seek to support transformation at a wider, societal level.
This is why we’re proud to be the key funding partner on the University of Stirling’s INVITE project, that is all about promoting inclusive living via technology-enabled support. To deliver the research programme, the University is engaging with residents and communities of one of the UK’s leading social housing providers, Stonewater.
Technology has enormous potential to support the quality of life for people with a wide range of conditions, especially including those with age-related conditions, such as dementia. Technology can enable people to remain independent, stay in their own homes and keep connected to friends, family and their wider communities.
During what we all know has been such a challenging year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re delighted that the University of Stirling has made great progress in this three-year funded research programme. This has resulted in the publication of their Ageing Well with Assistive Technology report that is a scoping review of the evidence to date.
The report lays the foundations for the next stages of the programme, and we can’t wait to see the University’s team getting out into the field and genuinely co-producing solutions with communities in the coming year.

We’re keen to develop new partnerships with social housing providers and collaborate with other funders so don’t hesitate to get in touch to get the conversation started!
