Steve Wood

Steve has worked across housing and care for over 30 years with a particular focus on the provision of accommodation and services which help older people maintain their independence.

Working largely in the public sector he champions the important role that suitable housing plays in the promotion of good health and wellbeing and works with organisations to help them maximise the benefits of their accommodation and support services, not only for their own customers but for the wider community.

Over the last few years he has worked as an independent consultant, using his years of experience to help organisations review their sheltered accommodation and to develop new extra care housing. Beyond this he has a working knowledge of the care sector, a career long association with the work carried out by home improvement agencies and an awareness of the potential offered by embracing technology through telecare applications.
