Context

Under the Care Act there is a requirement for closer cooperation of services that support the health and wellbeing of local populations. As part of a drive for more integration, the pioneering joint Health and Housing Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) is galvanising joint action on improving health through a focus on the role of housing.
