Health and Housing Conference
The quality of housing is a key determinant of health and wellbeing, with factors like cold and damp, physical accessibility, and location in relation to community support and out-of-home needs all having an impact. This conference will bring together a range of stakeholders including housing associations, architects, local government, integrated care NHS groups, 3rd Sector providers and academic researchers to present: best practice case studies; evaluations of new models; a range of new ideas and choices for housing, for example, in later life, in the context of health issues, for community living or for sustainability. The first aim is to share information at the cutting edge of housing and health development as the UK seeks to build homes and provide services that will support the health and well-being of the population into the future. The second aim is to use the day, and what we all learn from each other, to develop a regional Housing for Health Strategy.
