Breaking Barriers Innovations Health and Social Care Programme 2018:
This report draws the link between the relationship between health and housing and how the NHS and local authorities can work together to ensure both are addressed through integrated strategy, engagement with residents, workforce development and service transformation.
BBI Health and Social Care Programme 2018: HOMES (Healthy Outcomes Making Environments Safer) demonstrates how issues like housing, traditionally thought of outside of the realm of healthcare, are key to the long-term sustainability of health and social care. The current national housing crisis has put pressure on Local Authorities to increase the supply of affordable social housing, but more also needs to be done to improve surrounding environments and the upkeep of existing homes.
