Why housing matters to health and care

 Why housing matters to health and care cover

This briefing by the Welsh NHS Confederation and Cymorth Housing Cymru provides an overview of the benefits of housing working with health and care and showcases examples where housing and health work collaboratively.

It provides useful information that highlights how:

  • NHS, housing and social care working in partnership can help to maximise population health across the life course
  • Good housing is critical to the wider determinants of health and wellbeing, and
  • Housing Associations provide more than bricks and mortar. Their community and support functions align with the aims of health.
