The Chartered Institute of Housing is the independent voice for housing and the home of professional standards

Health and housing

Good housing makes a vital contribution to improving health and can reduce costs for the NHS, by preventing hospital admissions and other forms of acute care. CIH want better integration of the housing, health and social care services in the future and we work to ensure that this is recognised and acted on by government.

We want government to publish a long-term strategy for joining up health and housing with care and would like to see both the NHS and local authorities shift more spending away from acute care towards preventative services, often provided in the home.
