This workshop is aimed at professionals who are responsible for housing and health strategy, budgets and delivery.
We are working with DECC to identify:
- actions taken to tackle fuel poverty: health outcomes in different groups (e.g. children, adults etc); mental health outcomes; other social outcomes; the potential cost savings to local health services and how best to measure these.
- existing examples of health initiated household improvements with a view to understanding what is working on the ground at the moment; what experience participants have of interaction with health or social services professionals; the barriers to such projects getting off the ground (beyond lack of funding) and how such health ‘referrals’ can best be translated into household improvements.
