Connecting health with the housing sector

The connection between health and housing has never been higher on the agenda. We have a wealth of experience in the delivery of services that have increased integration between health and housing for the benefit of local people and communities.

We develop partnerships by being clear about the mutual purpose, building confidence and trust and promoting a culture of collaboration and shared learning.

 

Our sectors are most successful when we come together
