Johnnie Johnson Housing secures place to grow ideas within ‘The Greenhouse’

First Published: 20/02/2018

The Greenhouse will provide a structured programme that supports participants to accelerate, incubate and trial innovative ideas that have real social impact and can be scaled up across the housing association sector.

Johnnie Johnson’s Head of Independent Living, Tricia Grierson put forward ideas and was successful in securing a place at the 'Future Hack' in March. Johnnie Johnson will be joining 35 participants from across the housing sector to address assigned social challenges. The ‘Future Hack’ will involve a three day intensive training period where teams will develop ideas into initial prototypes.

As well as co-creating ideas for Greenhouse, the event will be used to identify 15 people who will progress on to the structured Greenhouse programme.

Tricia Grierson, Head of Independent Living at Johnnie Johnson Housing said “We are thrilled to have been accepted on to the initial stage of the Greenhouse project and look forward to building on our positive ideas with colleagues from across the sector. Having the opportunity to be involved in creating housing’s future is fantastic and one which we will relish.”
