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

Tyfu Tai Cymru (TTC) is a five-year housing policy project which aims to provide insightful analysis and fill evidence gaps to support policy progression. Funded by the Oak Foundation, the project is managed by the Chartered Institute of Housing Cymru and covers three main strands:

  • Building the right homes to meet demand
  • Making sure housing is always a priority for local government
  • Demonstrating housing’s role in keeping people well and healthy 

The ACTion programme

The programme aims to harness the expertise and insight of housing professionals locally and combine this with Tyfu Tai Cymru’s resources to take forward co-designed solutions, draw out what works and why and influence decision makers in the interest of improving the approach across the whole of Wales.

‘Good health brought home’ - principles of partnerships between health housing and social care.

The Tyfu Tai Cymru project has launched its ‘Good health brought home’ report focussing on what makes a good partnership between health, housing and social care. The work has been funded through the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence’s (CaCHE) Knowledge Exchange Fund that seeks to share evidence-based approach to improving practice between professionals and sectors.

The research looked at fifteen different projects from all over Wales, including those which reduce delays in returning home from hospital, reducing loneliness and isolation and specialist accommodation with support.
