Connecting Housing and Health

The Connecting Housing and Health series of briefings provide learning on health commissioning and NHS providers.

7 May 2014

Joint working between housing and health can reduce pressures on the NHS and improve an individual’s overall wellbeing.

Housing associations are keen to explore ways of working effectively with the NHS and public health to address unmet health needs among tenants and the communities in which they operate.

These briefings aim to support housing associations in shaping a health offer, but do not present a step-by-step guide. They sit alongside the Routes into Health briefings, which explain the new NHS structures and ways to engage with health.

They are part of the Federation’s health partnership project.
