Housing LIN Blog

Housing Solutions – an early intervention approach

In their guest blog for the Housing LIN, Jill Pritchard & Alison Docherty set out how HealthCare Improvement Scotland’s Adapting for Change programme adopted an early intervention approach to achieve better integrated housing solutions for people in Scotland.

They show that by ensuring that a wide range of practitioners can engage with service users at the earliest possible opportunity health and wellbeing outcomes can be significantly improved, and housing has a big part to play in this. This blog will be of interest to anyone working in housing with care or specialist housing within a Scottish context.
