Yvonne Castle from JJH explained, “Having already held a successful inaugural event in the North East, we are building on our aspirations to become ‘Market Makers’ within independent living. We want to do this with partners, pooling our collective strengths.  We have 1,300 properties in Yorkshire and Derbyshire so we think it’s important we work together to develop innovative solutions for our residents.”
