Improving health through the home

Resources to inform local action to ensure that everyone has a home in which to start, live and work, and age well.


This guide produced by Public Health England describes why investing in improving the home or housing circumstances may be an effective means to:

  • improving health and wellbeing
  • reducing health inequalities
  • preventing, delaying and reducing demand for health care and social care

To support and inform local action, links are provided to the main sources of data, evidence and guidance. A checklist suggests the questions that should be asked locally of commissioning plans to ensure that home, health and wellbeing are considered in all policies.
