BBI Health and Social Care: HOMES Summit 2018

The BBI Health and Social Care: HOMES Summit 2018, which takes place at Prince Philip House in London on 15th November, will explore the impact of housing on health and wellbeing and discuss how a collaborative approach addressing health inequalities through a focus on healthy homes and safer environments can make a difference.

Featuring a keynote speech by Caroline Dinenage MP, Minister of State for Care, the summit will:

  • Offer leaders and senior policy advisors from the NHS, Local Government and the private and third sectors practical & effective models of integrated action for housing and health
  • Spark a national discussion about bringing housing to the table on health decision making

Findings from latest report

Dr Jon Bashford, Research Programme Director at BBI, and Lord Patel of Bradford, chair of Social Work England and Co-Chair of BBI, will unveil the findings and recommendations from BBI’s work with West Lancashire CCG and latest report.

The report explores the key factors from housing and the built environment and the impact on health in England. The report also contains a ‘playbook’ detailing a range of tools and methods that can be used by the NHS, Local Government, and partner organisations to build a sustainable approach to healthier homes and safer environments for all communities.

This summit represents a significant opportunity to inform policy and practice and promote debate on how we can use housing and the lived environment as a catalyst for health improvement and addressing health inequalities at a pivotal time for public healthcare planning across the country.
