Next steps for integrating health and housing in England

Central London

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This conference will be an opportunity to discuss the next steps for integrating health and housing in England - looking at priorities for building accessible homes, adapting to an ageing population and the next steps for policy.


Following the government announcement of additional funding to build homes for vulnerable people, delegates will discuss key issues for the allocation of funding and for meeting targets to build accessible homes to aid independent living over the next three years.


Attendees will also consider what more could be done to promote healthy and active communities and encourage housing designs to reflect the changing needs of the population, in light of the Social Housing Green Paper - A new deal for social housing.


The seminar will also be an opportunity to assess the progress of NHS England’s Healthy New Towns programme and the ten demonstrator sites across the country - as well as the key issues for NHS England’s Putting Health into Place publication expected in spring 2019, following the publication of the 10 Healthy New Town Principles, which provides recommendations to support stakeholders when creating new places.


Further sessions focus on addressing the causes of rough sleeping and measures to be taken to provide support - looking at the impact of the funding boost of £30m over the next five years for targeted mental health funding for rough sleepers as part of the plan to end rough sleeping by 2027.
