How to... deliver quality housing and health partnerships
DescriptionThis 'how to' guide sets out how housing professionals can establish effective relationships with colleagues working in health, to improve outcomes for residents. It is important because:
- Housing makes a significant contribution to helping people to live healthy and active lives, as independently as possible
- Housing and related support services provide valuable help to enable people to achieve independence at times of difficulty and can prevent difficulties becoming a crisis
- The housing sector has a role in ensuring that people do not return to hospital because their housing places them at risk of falls, or repeat episodes of ill health.
