Event Summary

About the event

“Demand for adult social care has been increasing for some time, and it shows no sign of letting up. Inflation and cost of living pressures have added to the cost of delivering social care, but ultimately councils are trying their best to plug the gaps in an underfunded and unstable system” – LGA spokesperson.
Join Two Generations’ latest webinar to learn one way to tackle the social care budget crisis facing local government. Explore how Homeshare offers immediate and effective help with early intervention, boosting independent living among older communities while saving councils £000s every day.
Our Chair is Luciana Berger, Senior Advisor at iNHouse Communications and a former Managing Director at Edelman, where she specialised in health policy. Previously the MP for Liverpool Wavertree, Luciana held prominent front bench roles, including Shadow Minister for Public Health and Shadow Cabinet Member for Mental Health and was a leading Health and Social Care Select Committee member.

Speakers include:

  • Rebecca Byrne, Head of Initial Contact and Response Hackney Council

  • Philip Monaghan, Partnerships Development Director, Two Generations

  • Greta & Rick, long-time Homesharers, interviewed by Lisa Goldsobel, Director of Services

  • Jens Gemmel, Interim Transformation Director for Housing, Southwark Council

  • Cllr Colin Noble, Health and Social Care Spokesman, County Councils Network (TBC)

Discover how councils are embracing new ways to deliver independent living for older communities through Homeshare without extra costs while offering affordable accommodation to support recruitment and retention of key workers. Join the live Q&A with Luciana and our experienced panel and learn how to set up a local Homeshare service with expert support from an experienced national Social Enterprise.
