Chaired by Jan Williams, chair of Public Health Wales, this event will consider the impact housing has on health and wellbeing, including its importance in reducing health inequalities in Wales and wider population health.
A range of speakers discussed the contributions their organisations make to health and wellbeing, promoting good practice from across Wales.
We examined how housing associations and providers work with local NHS organisations, and wider partners through Regional Partnership Boards, enable the NHS to support hospital discharge locally, and the importance of a good home to the prevention agenda.
