About this event
This live online event examined some of the ways in which housing and health organisations can work together to improve population health and wellbeing.
It looked at the strengths of both the housing sector and the health sector and their role in jointly delivering more integrated local health and care systems.

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.
