The TAPPI principles are a set of 10 principles which aim to ensure technology services in housing and care settings are implemented effectively to improve the lives of older people. The principles indicate that such technology services should be adaptable, co-produced, cost-effective, choice-led, interoperable, inclusive, outcome-focused, person-centred, preventative and quality-focused.


The Cambridge Centre for Housing and Planning Research (CCHPR) is the TAPPI Phase 2 evaluation and shared learning partner, and is working to evaluate the adoption of the 10 TAPPI principles across six testbed sites. In December 2022, CCHPR led an evaluation workshop to provide the testbed staff with guidance on how to successfully evaluate their projects. The workshop highlighted several key considerations which organisations planning to evaluate a technology service should take into account.
