Housing management, community care and CCT

David Clapham and Bridget Franklin

The importance of housing in community care has only recently received adequate recognition, and it is still unclear what the precise role of housing management should be.

This study by researchers at the University of Glasgow examined the implications for housing management in mainstream housing.

The research discovered that there was considerable disagreement over the extent to which housing managers could or should play a role in meeting community care objectives, and in particular whether this should involve a support or welfare function.
