An event has been held to showcase Ashford Borough Council's £17 million flagship sheltered housing scheme at Farrow Court as a pioneering way to address the emerging health and housing agenda.

Held during Dementia Action Week, the event provided an opportunity for a specially invited audience of frontline housing, health and social care professionals to hear how the council is achieving better outcomes for health and social care through all aspects of housing - such as its own building programme and homelessness prevention.

Guests included senior representatives from Kent County Council, Ashford's Clinical Commissioning Group, registered providers of housing and other local authorities in Kent.
