Housing and Health Collective
Housing, health and social care agencies have been subject to extensive and rapid change in recent years. This has resulted in a lack of collaboration and understanding of one another.
The two sectors have also faced a number of challenges over the years. Barriers to effective collaboration including the widespread lack of resources, the introduction of markets into the provision of social care for example have resulted in competition between agencies; and no clear national agenda nor co-ordination of government programmes within which local agencies could work together.
That’s why we created the Housing and Health Collective, a placed based partnership (covering South, Central, West and East) creating systematic change through joining up housing, health and communities.
