This chapter charts the emergence of the Future Homes Alliance, a community interest company of which Newcastle University is a partner, formed to develop new models of housing. Against a background of diminishing power at the sub-national government level, the privatisation of public services and public finance cutbacks there is a growing discourse around what has been termed the 2.0 business landscape characterised by participation, co-creation and collectivism. In this new place-based leadership model, universities have emerged as key institutions who can identify evidence gaps, undertake research, facilitate knowledge transfer partnerships and create places of trust for exchanging ideas. It is in this context that the first author brought together a group of named individuals spanning the quadruple helix (academia, business/industry, the local municipality and the voluntary/community sector) to create new housing that responds to demographic change and sustainability. Planning permission has been granted in 2020 for the construction of 66 dwellings.

Keywords:   co-creation, demographic change, participation, quadruple helix, sustainability
