Key issues driving increased joint working
Outcomes from a West Midlands health and housing round table - Summer 2017
We hosted a round table at our Birmingham office to explore the benefits of joint working between the health and housing sectors in the West Midlands and - perhaps more importantly given the wide acknowledgement and growing evidence base for the links between good housing, wellbeing and health - the opportunities for more collaboration between those sectors. We had a range of participants from both fields in attendance - details are at the end of this report.
The discussion was open and wide-ranging, identifying both opportunities and challenges. A number of key themes emerged from the discussion. Rather than providing a detailed commentary on every point made we have explored each of these themes in further detail.
